Notes & Reviews:

EMI Classics is pleased to release the latest installment of highlights from the Martha Argerich Project at the Lugano Festival. This is the ninth annual 3-CD set celebrating the musical fruits of a project in which young artist join seasoned performers, including Martha Argerich herself, to explore wide-ranging chamber music and orchestral repertoire, both well known and rarely heard. The collection, recorded in the summer of 2011, is being released in anticipation of the Festival's 2012 season in June.

As a chamber music event which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2011, this series has become a laboratory that gives guest artists a chance to prove themselves not only in well-known masterpieces but also in rarely performed repertoire. Live at Lugano Festival 2011 welcomes back mainly familiar names from the previous Live releases including Virgin Classics' inimitable violin- and cello-soloist brothers, Renaud and Gautier Capucon. The 3-CD set includes Beethoven's Sonata in G major featuring Renaud Capucon as well as Haydn's Trio in C major featuring Polina Leschenko on piano, Alisssa Margulis on violin and Julian Steckel on cello.

Few artists have nurtured and promoted emerging young musicians with the level of personal commitment shown by Martha Argerich. In the process, she has created inspired and inspirational chamber music partnerships mixing established and up-and-coming artist. A legend in her own lifetime for her technical mastery and passionate artistry, Argerich possesses an infectious spirit that has fired her won performances and partnerships as well as those of her colleagues and protégés.

The Telegraph
A sense of the musicians' infectious enjoyment, even when their musicality is of the most serious kind, emanates from this entire programme. Argerich's presence and ever-youthful spirit conspire to inspire performances of untold pleasure.

The Observer
This 2011 instalment is exceptionally interesting, with rarities including the big-boned, folksy piano quintet by the Polish composer Juliusz Zarebski...The highlight is an absolutely titanic account of Liszt's flamboyant Concerto pathTtique with Lilya Zilberstein: breathtaking.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2012
The Liszt Concerto pathetique...is the best thing on these discs, responding well to the typically wild, dramatic Martha Argerich treatment. Elsewhere in these recitals...she communicates to both audience and her fellow artists an abundance of energy that is, sadly, not always well directed.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
These may or may not be likely to become library choices for this repertoire but to invite comparisons is hardly the point: what is palpable in these Lugano CD grab-bags is the festival atmosphere and the intensity of chamber music-making at such a high level.
