Notes and Editorial Reviews

"From the explosive piano entry in the E minor concerto, Martha Argerich’s new recording of Chopin’s piano concertos – revisiting repertoire recorded by her in the Sixties and Seventies – leaves no doubt that she is more than ever a supremely commanding performer. Drive and muscularity are tempered with the most persuasive, caressing gestures in playing whose authority of utterance and integrity of vision almost silence criticism. Every note – even the few where Argerich’s constantly inspired and imaginative interpretation verges on eccentricity – shines with purpose."
