Notes & Reviews:

No other pianist in the musical world nurtures and promotes emerging talent with the same level of personal commitment and belief as Martha Argerich. The renowned pianist's annual festival in Lugano has become a musical meeting ground of the highest order - a mix of well-established and less familiar artists, many of them young, all of them compelling. This 3-CD set welcomes back many familiar names from the three previous 'Live from the Lugano Festival' releases, including Gabriela Montero and Renaud Capucon. The program highlight, however, is a rare solo recital performance of Martha herself playing Schumann's 'Kinderszenen Op.15' - not to be missed!

Three CD set. 43 tracks. Pianst Martha Argerich is permanently invited by the most prestigious orchestras, conductors and music festivals in Europe, Japan and America, yet chamber music takes a significant part of her musical life. She regularly plays and records with pianists Nelson Freire and Alexandre Rabinovitch, cellist Mischa Maisky and violonist Gidon Kremer: "This harmony within a group of people gives me a strong and peaceful feeling".This album features composers: Bela Bartok, Witold Lutoslawski, Olivier Messiaen, Maurice Ravel, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Mikhail Ivanovich Glinka and Ernst von Dohnányi.

The Observer
These annual live sets from the Lugano festival are one of the delights of the year.

BBC Music Magazine
Some superlative music-making from Martha Argerich herself, and indeed from the classy line-up of colleagues around her.

The Guardian
EMI's latest collection of Lugano recordings is one of the best so far, largely because it is dominated by the great lady herself - and because this is clearly the atmosphere in which Argerich is most relaxed and able to give of her dazzling, inspirational best...All the performances convey a sense of sheer enjoyment.
