About

Two legends together on record for the first time in Beethovenís First Piano Concerto, plus the composerís First Symphony.

Martha Argerich was born in Buenos Aires. From the age of five, she took piano lessons with Vicenzo Scaramuzza. In 1955 she went to Europe with her family, and received tuition from Friedrich Gulda in Vienna; her teachers also included Nikita Magaloff and Stefan Askenase. Following her first prizes in the piano competitions in Bolzano and Geneva in 1957, she embarked on an intensive programme of concerts. Her victory in the Chopin Competition in Warsaw in 1965 was a decisive step on her path to worldwide recognition.

Seiji Ozawa was music director of the Vienna State Opera from 2002-2010 and is a favoured guest of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Prior to his Vienna State Opera appointment he served as music director of the Boston Symphony for 29 seasons (1973-2002), the longest serving music director in the orchestra's history.
