Notes & Reviews:

The term "living legend" is genuinely apt to Martha Argerich, whose dazzling amalgam of virtuosity, insight, eclecticism, generosity and mystery makes her a pianist of unrivalled fascination. Argentinian-born, Viennese-trained, and winner of the 1965 Chopin Competition, she became a sometimes elusive figure whose every appearance and recording aroused eager anticipation. Spanning the years 1965–2009, this collection presents Argerich in solo works, concertos and chamber collaborations – with distinguished colleagues and with young players she has mentored.
