fc-list '' family width | grep -i arial
what combinations of family x width you actually have in the cache.
For example, I don't have an entry called 'Arial' that has any other
width than 100. I do have 'Arial Narrow MT' but that's another family
and to get it I have to use
fc-match 'Arial Narrow MT'
'Arial Condensed' as in your example would be understood as family name
by FcNameParse but if there's no appropriate rule in place it won't get
mapped to 'Arial Narrow MT'.
So to get 'Arial:width=75' mapped to 'Arial Narrow MT', or to get 'Arial
Condensed' mapped to the same, you'd have to write fontconfig rules.
