Notes and Editorial Reviews
Legendary pianist Martha Argerich initiated a new musical Rendez-vous end of June 2018 at the wonderful Laeiszhalle of Hamburg (DE). From Beethoven to Debussy, from Brahms to Prokofiev, Martha Argerich performed in duo, trio and in concerto with musical friends like Mischa Maisky, Nicholas Angelich and Stephen Kovacevich, and started new collaborations with artists such as Akiko Suwanai, Alisa Weilerstein, Guy Braunstein or Edgar Moreau. She also accompanied for the first-time world renowned baritone Thomas Hampson in Schumann’s Dichterliebe, a role she rarely endorsed during her career and a première in her discography. This is a unique musical celebration in which the piano legend performs new repertoire like Prokofiev's Overture on Jewish Themes. Featuring a total of 7 well-filled albums, this release will also allow you to rediscover some of Martha Argerich’s battle horses such as Beethoven's triple or Shostakovich's first concerto in new state of the art recordings.

REVIEW:

If ever there was an Aladdin’s cave of records, this is it. Entitled Rendezvous with Martha Argerich, the world’s most extraordinary pianist shares her joy in collaboration with her circle of close friends, far from the strains and stresses of solo playing. There are fine performances by many other artists, but this is essentially about Argerich’s glory in an album crowned with striking photographs of all concerned.
