Claudio Arrau

Claudio Arrau was born in Chillan, Chile on February 6, 1903. A child prodigy who began performing at the age of five, Arrau was sent by the Chilean government to study in Berlin with Martin Krause at the age of ten. Arrau began giving recitals in 1914 and, following the end of World War I, he toured throughout Europe. He made his U.S debut in 1923. From 1925 to 1940, Arrau lived in Berlin, where he taught and performed. In 1941, Arrau settled in the U.S. and after the second World War, his concert schedule often included over 100 performances each year. Arrau commanded an exceptionally large repertoire, much of which he recorded for RCA Victor, Columbia, Decca, EMI, and Philips. Arrau died in 1991.
