Arthur Grumiaux & Clara Haskil


The Grumiaux-Haskil duo lasted for over a decade. Totally dedicated to the music, they approached their repertoire and their audiences with natural and unaffected playing. Lyrical pureness, accurate tonal balance, absolute commitment and sublime musicality were some of the most characteristics of this renowned ensemble. So under any circumstance, you should not miss this legendary Strasbourg Recital 1956, that has never been published before and confirms by far all these praised epithets around this overwhelming couple.
