Overview

Martha Argerich's complete Chopin recordings on Deutsche Grammophon have been gathered together for this five-CD box set, in celebration of the pianist's 75th birthday. Spanning a period from 1959 to 2000, the recordings include live and studio performances, as well as recordings for radio broadcast. This trimline package contains many, though not all, of Chopin's piano works, and there are two different performances each of the "Piano Sonata No. 3 in B minor," the "Introduction and Polonaise brillante in C major," and the "Sonata for cello and piano in G minor." While most of the selections are works for solo piano, Argerich is joined by longtime collaborators Claudio Abbado, Mstislav Rostropovich, and Mischa Maisky, who share Argerich's commitment and energy. As is usually the case with reissued material, collectors should note that all of the recordings in this set have appeared previously on LP or CD.
