This review is from: Martha Argerich and Friends - Live from Lugano Festival 2011 (Audio CD)I have never been able to go to Lugano to hear this festival. It would cost a lot of money and time. However through this inexpensive box we can at least hear the performances as they were given. There is some terrific musicmaking here by Argerich and her friends. The great lady herself Performs one of her party pieces, the Ravel concerto, with great aplomb. There is also a wonderful performance of the Beethoven violin sonata number eight. Standard classics and more offbeat numbers come together here to make a very enjoyable time of life musicmaking. It's as if the performers are playing for their own enjoyment and asking people to join them in listening. At their very reasonable price people should not hesitate in investing in these discs even if some of the music is a bit offbeat.
