Overview

The annual Lugano Festival gives Martha Argerich an opportunity to showcase her friends in live recordings that are released in box sets from Warner. The 10th package in the series, highlighting the 2012 summer festival, presents three CDs of lively and engaging performances, most notably of Argerich as soloist in a reading of Mozart's "Piano Concerto No. 25" with the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, while others capture her playing with longtime colleagues and rising musicians who share her enthusiasm for chamber and keyboard music. Among the special treats are a performance of Mahler's "Piano Quartet in A minor" by pianist Lily Maisky, violinist Sascha Maisky, violist Lyda Chen, and cellist Mischa Maisky; a two-piano performance of Brahms' "Variations on a Theme of Haydn" by Argerich and Nicholas Angelich; and perhaps most astonishing, a three-piano transcription of Debussy's "La Mer," played by Giorgia Tomassi, Carlo Maria Griguoli, and Alessandro Stella. Argerich is also joined by her friend Maria João Pires in Mozart's "Sonata in D major for piano four-hands," and cellist Gautier Capuçon and violinist Renaud Capuçon make special appearances with Argerich in chamber works by Schumann and Prokofiev, respectively.
