Martha Argerich - piano

Martha Argerich, born in Buenos Aires in 1941, has been described by Gramophone as “unquestionably one of the greatest pianists of all time, her legendary pianism, liquid-fire virtuosity and imaginative vitality unique in the annals of piano playing”.

Pianist magazine has written that: “Few other musicians spark such adoration among peers and juniors alike as does Martha Argerich.” Fellow Warner Classics pianist Stephen Kovacevich, who has been close to her for decades, says: “Her sound in wonderful. She has a gift and she must enjoy showing her gift – and that’s infectious.”

Argerich’s career has been unconventional and this adds to her charisma and mystique. Though her artistic range is wide, she has focused on a relatively small, though diverse repertoire. She prefers the less lonely pursuits of concertos, chamber music and repertoire for piano duo than solo recitals, and gives only a limited number of performances a year.

She is a generous mentor to young artists, notably through her Progetto Martha Argerich at the Lugano Festival in Switzerland, which has resulted in a number of albums in the Warner Classics catalogue.

The box comprises all (live) recordings made by Martha Argerich at the Lugano Festival, from 2002 to the last edition in 2016, and released by EMI Classics and Warner Classics. An impressive collection of 22CDs without equivalent.

It includes a variety of genres: some solo piano music, lots of music for piano duo and among them many arrangements, chamber works and concertos.

The composers span the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, with Schumann, Mozart, Ravel, Beethoven, Rachmaninov, Brahms and Shostakovich being the most frequently performed.

Among the artists appearing with Argerich on these recordings are: Stephen Kovacevich, Renaud Capuçon, Gautier Capuçon, Lilya Zilberstein, Mischa Maisky, Lyda Chen, Alexander Mogilevsky, Gabriela Montero, Yefim Bronfman, Maxim Vengerov, Gidon Kremer, Maria Joao Pires, Mauricio Vallina, Mikhail Pletnev, Alexander Vedernikov...
