Notes & Reviews:

The first release in Deutsche Grammophon's new partnership with the Verbier Festival, this album documents a concert when Martha Argerich was given carte blanche to invite whoever she wanted, to play whatever she and they chose at her Verbier Festival concert on 27 July 2007. Argerich's artistic partners are Yuri Bashmet, Renaud Capuçon, Lang Lang, Mischa Maisky, Gabriela Montero and Julian Rachlin.

Financial Times, 11th July 2015
It is thanks to the microphones at festivals like Verbier that we have so many new recordings from Martha Argerich. Not that anybody will need to be reminded these performances from 2007 were live. With Argerich at the piano, "live" is the word, whether in high-octane Bart=k...or a tingling account of Beethoven's "Ghost" Trio.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2015
There are so many good things to hear here, all given the extra frisson of live performance, that it's hard to pick a favourite, although mention must be made of Lutoslawski's Paganini Variations, with Gabriela Montero on first piano. Montero also supplies the encore...It brings the house down. What a night indeed!
