* 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.
* Brand new recording - state-of-the-art quality.
