Notes & Reviews:
The world's first recording on historical instruments of Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1, featuring a sensational performance given by Martha Argerich with the Orchestra of the 18th Century under the baton of Frans Bruggen, during the "Chopin and his Europe" festival in 2012.
Perhaps the most lionized soloist on the current circuit ... both an impulsive player who sent sparks from the piano, and a marvelous lyricist who shaped a melodic phrase with utmost suppleness and a tone so luminous it all but glowed in the dark.
