4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stuff - mainly. 14 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having thought of this lady as one of my very favourite pianists, ever since I bought my first LP of her's some 40 years ago, nothing on these discs alters this opinion.

Although she was approaching 70 on disc 6 of this collection, her playing still scintillates like few other performers of much earlier vintage. Her partner (on piano that is!), Nelson Freire, does not disappoint either. In fact all of her colleagues on the set are admirably chosen and give of their finest. The sound also, on all the discs, is excellent.

So why only 4 stars? Well, this relates to the inclusion of a couple of items, which I personally, could have done without.

Two pieces are repeated, the Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances and Ravel's Mother Goose, and I much prefer the later recordings of both. That of course is my own opinion, but I would be very surprised if a majority of listeners would think otherwise. The later Rachmaninov has much more verve and fire about it, which it needs, and I find the percussion in the arrangement of the earlier first Ravel, distracting and thoroughly unecessary. Of course I do not have to listen to these tracks, but I find it a slightly strange decision to include them, thus depriving me of something, arguably, more appropriate to an otherwise lovely collection.

Having said that, my advice is to BUY IT! At £2.50 a disc, at the price I paid, this box is a gift and I'm now sifting through the others on the list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Argerich and friends soar in everything here -- nothing is less than superb 7 Dec 2010
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first two installments in the Argerich Collection deserved nothing less than raves, and this last installment certainly deserves the same on musical grounds. Some of the two-piano pieces tended to be out of print, but with a bit of scouring online, nothing here is exactly scarce. Let me give the contents before making any further remarks, and for those who don't need further remarks, it's enough to say that the whole set is a treasure trove and a bargain, except for those true Argerich devotees who are likely to own most of the higher profile recordings already.

Bartók:
Sonata for 2 pianos, percussion & orchestra, BB 121, Sz. 115

Brahms:
Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25

Variations on a theme by Haydn for two pianos, Op. 56b 'St Anthony Variations'

Prokofiev:
Cinderella, Op. 87

Rachmaninov:
Symphonic Dances, Op. 45

Ravel:
Ma Mère l'Oye

Rapsodie Espagnole

La Valse (for 2 pianos)

Schubert:
Rondo for piano duet in A major, D951

Schumann:
Fantasiestücke in A minor for Piano Trio, Op. 88

Shostakovich:
Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67

Tchaikovsky:
The Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a

Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50 'In Memory of a Great Artist'

The pianist's collaborators are nothing less than stellar in their own right: Gidon Kremer, Mischa Maisky, Yuri Bashmet, Nicolas Economou, Mikhail Pletnev, and Nelson Freire. I believe that I've reviewed all of these performances individually, but looking over the list now, I must say that each and every recording could be considered best in class, an astonishing claim considering how wide-ranging Argerich's repertoire is on these CDs. As you can see, there's a predominance of piano duets, a form that Argerich favors almost to surfeit; you can get duplications of these works on EMI and other labels, with various partners gathered from her summer festival in Lugano. but she is so attuned to Economou, Pletnev and Freire that no one could be better. the major two-piano music that is absent are Rachmaninov's two Suites. I find Argerich too hectic in those works, but you can judge for ourself by seeking out her versions on Teldec (both suites) and EMI (Suite no. 2).

I suppose I deserve an Unehlpful when I declare that I can't pick a favorite from this box set. But an embarrassment of riches is the best kind of embarrassment, when all is said and done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome collection of Martha and her friends 13 May 2011
By GEORGE RANNIE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Volume three (3) of DGG's tribute to Martha Argerich's artistry as has been evidenced by her many recordings for that company is awesome indeed. In this wonderful grouping of previous releases, we have divine chamber music such as the: Rachmaninov "Symphonic Dances"; Bartok's "Sonata for two pianos and Percussion"; Brahms `first Piano Quartet, et al, along with some rather unknown, works that were ether written for small ensemble or arranged for same such as Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker suite" from the ballet arranged for two pianos; Ravel's "Ma Mere L'oye" arranged for two pianos, et al. The arrangements all tended to be "new" to me in their "guises" in this recording; however they all are thrilling played as is everything in this six (6) disc set. Martha is joined by some very imminent musicians in this collection such as: Nelson Freire, piano; Gidon Kremer, violin; Mischa Maisky, cello, etc. This is a wonderful tribute to Martha's talents and to her love and devotion to chamber music. All that I can say to this very fine compilation is bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent 13 Mar 2012
By Jose Mario Serra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had bought all 4 Argerich's boxes (a total of 24 CDs) and this 3rd volume is a great addition to my small classical music collection. It's filled with some of the most important and representative recordings made by this "virtuose" pianist. My favorite ones are the sessions with Nelson Freire. Sessions with Mischa Mayski are great also! Very recommended to everyone that appreciate calssical piano albums, performed by one of the greatest names of the last 50 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic playing 10 Feb 2014
By Alan A. Elsner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Martha Argerich in her later career has preferred playing chamber music and collaborating with other top musicians than playing solo. In this collection, we hear her with assorted collaborators and some of the performances are jaw-dropping. I do not believe there is another account of the Brahms Piano Quartet No 1 that can touch this for sheer excitement and exuberance. The final movement flashes by at breakneck speed. The Tchaikovsky trio with Gidon Kremer and Misha Maisky is also splendid with a fantastic account of the second movement of variations. The Shostakovich trio is deeply moving.

I'm a little less enthusiastic about the piano duets here. There are two accounts of a piano version of the Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances which seems like overkill for a transcription that doesn't really reproduce the orchestral colors of the original. There are some movements from the Nutcracker which are interesting for being different and some Prokofiev.

Overall, really good deal to get this box at the advertised price.
