Notes & Reviews:

This album presents a brilliant live recording of pianists Jura Margulis and Martha Argerich performing in Lugano in 2014. Fulfilling a life-long dream of his, Margulis performs with Argerich his own transcription for two pianos of Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain. Also on this album are several solo works, performed by Margulis, by esteemed composers such as Bach, Liszt, Mozart, and Shostakovich. This recording is truly an ovation-worthy performance.
