Notes & Reviews:

Martha Argerich's associations with violinist Gidon Kremer and cellist Mischa Maisky are surely among the pianist’s most substantial and musically rewarding collaborations. The present collection includes all of the Argerich/Kremer and Argerich/Maisky duo recordings for Deutsche Grammophon as originally released and in chronological order.

"The somewhat brittle, hard-edged tone that Kremer produces and which seemed to elicit the most criticism, strikes me as virtually ideal for much of this music. Given Argerich’s similarly steely-fingered accompaniments, this is not a comfortable ride – nor should it be... I found these readings extremely rewarding, with two obviously temperamental artists showing a fierce, uncompromising brilliance in both works. Whether such diamond-edged playing is for you will remain a personal choice, but with close, intimate sound to suit the playing, and an interesting liner-note from Julian Haylock, I think this disc puts itself firmly back in the front line." -Music-Web International (On The Prokofiev Violin Sonatas)

"For years she has been afraid that her Beethoven readings might sound self-conscious when pinned down on record, but if this first issue of sonatas is a fair sample, she has no need to worry. It was an inspired idea to match her against a violinist so unpredictable as she is herself, for though there is nothing 'safe' about these interpretations, and not everyone will respond to their sparkling, volatile qualities, the liveness of the experience is undeniable... Argerich's clarity of articulation is a constant delight often at speeds so fast—as in the first movement of Sonata No. 1—that Kremer finds it hard to articulate his answering passage-work with anything like the same evenness and clarity. Even so, he has rarely sounded so happy on record." -Gramophone (On The Beethoven Violin Sonatas)

"A magnificent triumph for all concerned including the recording team of Producer Sid McLaughlin and Engineer Stephan Flock, who have managed to convey all the atmosphere of a live event with the utmost clarity. My disc of the month." -MusicWeb-International (on Stravinsky, Prokofiev & Shostakovich Cello Sonatas)
