Notes & Reviews:

‘It was nearly impossible not to be swept along with the tide,’ wrote Musical America of Martha Argerich, ‘[She] tore into the score with a recklessness – and accuracy – that had to be heard to be believed ... It is clear that she is operating on a loftily instinctive level of musicianship where spontaneity rather than calculation is the order of the day.’ On these four CDs, Argerich illuminates a characteristically eclectic collection of works for piano and orchestra.
