6. Claudio Arrau (1903 – 1991)
Arrau preached fidelity to the score, and played exactly as it was written on the page. He said: "Since in music we deal with notes, not words, with chords, with transitions, with color and expression, the musical meaning always based on those notes as written and nothing else - has to be divined."
