Sir Thomas Beecham's Messiah has become notorious among baroque purists (like this writer) for embodying the worst excesses of pre-1960 Handel performance: ponderous tempos, stentorian opera singers, huge lumbering choruses and orchestras, crashing cymbals, clanging triangles….

Lovely, wonderful, inspired, poised performances by an aristocrat pianist. Arrau, who studied with 1 of Liszt’s students, brings us the 19th-century grand manner in music that in lesser hands can sound empty & like so much Romantic slapdash claptrap. Make no mistake, this is pianism of the most patrician & musical quality that never takes ANY musical gesture as a throw-away.
