Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Gabriele Baldocci met Martha Argerich and was enraptured by her personality. After hearing Baldocci play piano at a competition she organized in Buenos Aires, Argerich invited him to the Martha Argerich Project of Lugano and on a tour of Argentina with her. As of April 2013, they have performed together in public over twenty times, and he considers her the most influential person of his life.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2013
This is a gloriously joyful disc...[Baldocci] is a protTgT of Argerich's and the pleasure they take in making music on this CD, the first of a projected series...Dynamic can be relied on for the best possible sound, and this disc is in all respects a winner.
