Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.

"**** Argerich's fire makes this disc essential listening. She crackles at the scales in the First Piano Concerto and lights the jaunty beacon themes. She ignites, too, the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, who follow like the wind...." -- Times of London
