ARTURO BENEDETTI MICHELANGELI PLAYS MOZART
These concert recordings from the 1956 Ludwigsburg Festival show a supreme pianistic technician at the peak of his powers. More rewardingly and valuably still, they reveal a quality of the 36-year-old Michelangeli's artistry that in later years he tended to submerge: intensely forceful engagement with the works he played.
