Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, March 2015
It is...rather more than a convenient repertoire compendium because, taken overall, there are few finer versions anywhere of each title...All in all, a Rachmaninov-fest to savour.

Martha Argerich's long career has included many outstanding solo performances, but she has often professed to feeling 'lonely' on stage. This CD showcases the area in which she feels truly at home: her extensive and fruitful collaborations with other first-class musicians. Among the many younger pianists she has taken under her wing at her academy in Lugano are Lilya Zilberstein, who rose to fame in the 1990s and whose sparkling playing is also featured on this disc, as well as Nelson Goerner, whose collaboration with Argerich in Rachmaninov's nostalgic Symphonic Dances is released here for the first time. Also featured on this disc is the renowned pianist Gabriela Montero.
