A live concert filmed during Claudio Arrau's historic visit to Chile.

Of the world's greatest living pianists, perhaps only Claudio Arrau is as famous for his Brahms as he is for his Beethoven. His versions of the two epic Brahms Piano Concertos, one with Carlo Maria Guiulini and the other with Bernard Haitink, are cherished landmark performances in every record collector's library. As for his interpretation of the monumental Sonata no.3, there the revered master pianist truly outdoes himself. Today, no one else brings to the work the same powerful vision of romantic passion and depth of feeling allied to a transcendent virtuosity.

This historic performance was filmed in May 1984 when Maestro Arrau returned to play in Santiago, Chile, after an absence of 17 years. He was given a reception by his countrymen probably without equal.
