Notes & Reviews:

DG releases another legendary concert from Daniel Barenboim and Martha Argerich, performed in the Teatro Coló in 2015. Following the success of last year's inaugural album, Barenboim and Argerich elected to perform chamber music: Debussy's arrangement of Schumann's Six Studies in Canon Form, Debussy's own En blanc et noir and Bartók's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. Formerly available exclusively in digital format on PERAL MUSIC, Barenboim's label, this album is now available on CD.

Sunday Times, 5th June 2016
This concert...is clearly an emotional homecoming...If there's less youthful elan and rhythmic incisiveness in her playing with Barenboim [compared to earlier recordings with Kovacevich], their easy rapport in this music comes across with astonishing vitality from two septuagenarians.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
These are fresh, colourful readings; the Debussy is particularly vivid.
