About

Warner Classics is pleased to release the 12th annual 3CD set of highlights from the Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano, described in The Times (London), as “community music-making on a deluxe scale, with performers and listeners mutually uplifted by music’s wonders.”

The recordings celebrate the musical fruits of a project in which young artists join seasoned performers, including Martha Argerich herself, to explore wide-ranging chamber music and orchestral repertoire, both well-known and rarely heard. 

In addition to Ms Argerich, the 2014 Festival featured long-time collaborators such as Gidon Kremer, Gabriela Montero, Mischa Maisky, Gautier Capuçon and Lilya Zilberstein, as well as many of Ms Argerich’s young protégées, including pianists Anton and Daniel Gerzenberg and violinists Geza Hosszu-Logocky and Andrey Baranov, winner of the 2012 Queen Elizabeth Competition.  

With each annual instalment of Martha Argerich’s chamber music festival, you are plunged into a spontaneous ferment of music-making: few recordings capture so well the vivid energy of live performance.” - The Guardian

Everything Martha Argerich touches turns to gold, not only her own piano playing but those around her whom she evidently inspires to new heights.” - The Observer

Most prodigiously gifted of all pianists, [Martha Argerich] inspires others with her presence, and many of these performances are of an opulent and overwhelming glory … These discs are a reminder of a unique, ever-formidable and enchanting artist.” - Gramophone
