Notes & Reviews:

"...throughout these pages [of the Concerto No. 3] it is almost as if [Argerich] is searching for music that will allow her virtuosity its fullest scope. In the finale she finds it, accelerating out of the second movement with a sky-rocketing propulsion. Here the music races like wildfire, with a truly death-defying turn of speed at 7'21' and an explosive energy throughout that must have left audience, conductor and orchestra feeling as if hit by some seismic shock-wave" -Gramophone
