Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lovingly restored, this remarkable DVD presents two unreleased performances filmed by BBC television in 1977: celebrated pianist Martha Argerich plays the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 and Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Both pieces are technically demanding and prove to be an ideal vehicle for Argerich’s music inspiration, demonstrating why she is hailed as one of the world’s leading musicians. She is joined by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Charles Groves, and André Previn, in two powerhouse performances that offer a unique glimpse into our classical music heritage.

Recorded at the Guildhall, Preston, 6 February 1977 (Tchaikovsky) and at Fairfield Hall, Croydon, 3
