Martha Argerich has long been hailed as one of the greatest and most uniquely imaginative pianists.
This legendary Argentinean musician is surrounded by an aura of mystery: some find her too uncompromising, others generous and beautiful, yet to all she is without doubt incredibly talented.
When Argerich and Chailly performed the Schumann Piano Concerto it created a musical sensation! The connection between Argerich and Chailly underlines the whole work, and heartfelt applause sparks a charming encore: ‘‘Vom fremden Ländern und Menschen’’.
The perfect Blu-ray release for the Schumann Birthday Anniversary in 2010.
“Argerich, simply and assuredly, is one of the most magisterial talents in the history of piano playing." The Gramophone Magazine
