Notes & Reviews:

Warner Classics is pleased to release the 12th annual 3-CD set of highlights from the Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano, described in The Times (London) as "community music-making on a deluxe scale, with performers and listeners mutually uplifted by music's wonders." The recordings celebrate the musical fruits of a project in which young artists join seasoned performers, including Martha Argerich herself, to explore wide-ranging chamber music and orchestral repertoire, both well-known and rarely heard.

Martha Argerich, born in 1941, is widely regarded as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century.

MusicWeb International, July 2015
Argerich is on fine form... [there is]much wonderful music...and the best of the performances are uniquely special as ever.

Sunday Times, 21st June 2015
Lugano's Progetto Martha Argerich celebrates its 14th "edition" this year under the charismatic, if sometimes elusive, Argentine Klaviertigress, who gathers a select group of colleagues for chamber-music-making of the highest qualities. As she rarely ventures into the studio these days, it's a treat to have her first recording of Mozart's great D minor Piano Concerto.

The Guardian, 13th May 2015
The music-making always has a tremendous energy and relaxed enjoyment about it, and there's invariably something unexpected in the compilations...In everything...there's a sense of specialness, of off-the-cuff music-making of the highest class.

The Telegraph, 27th June 2015
It is indicative of the companionable spirit with which Argerich directs her Lugano project that you can hear her play all sorts of things that lie outside her familiar repertoire...And then there is her customary appearance in a concerto, this time Mozart's D minor K466...a performance seething with drama.

The Times, 29th May 2015
She is characteristically muscular in the Mozart, forceful in some Beethoven variations for piano and cello (Mischa Maisky gracefully yielding in an unequal battle) and superbly pungent in partnership with Dagmar Clottu in Poulenc's very Stravinsky-like Piano Sonata for four hands...Best of all, she is a sympathetically wistful partner for Gidon Kremer.
