Live recordings - unless laboriously patched later are always likely to contain mistakes . Unless they are obvious and egregious then most listeners will be able to cope with them on repeated listening. I note that the reviewer who marks these recordings down , however, gives no examples of serious mistakes .

As for his suggestion that the performances are under rehearsed he puts forward no evidence in support of that assertion and to say that they do not compare with the finest out there shows no analysis of the actual performances .

After getting that all off my chest - this is yet another wonderful set . The particular highlights for me are the Zarebski Piano Quintet which is apparently largely unknown outside Poland and which is a terrific addition to the catalogue and played with a glorious romantic sweep ,Mozart's sonata in F - Argerich is a wonderful player of just about everything but surely nobody has ever matched her in two piano or four hand repertoire and her collaborations with the Capucon brothers in Beethoven and Schumann.

The 2012 set is even better !

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.

This might be a formal sounding series of classical (implied highbrow!) concerts, but the actual sound and feel of muisic on the discs is that of real musicians, skillful people who know what they are doing, having fun, even exploring possibilities as the music happens. Maybe not the ideal recording of any particular piece if you were to study it for an exam, nor even necessarily the idiom of the composer, but that is not the point (you're not studying for an exam, are you?) these are enjoyable performances that are worth listening too... though I suppose you could leave them on in the background if you wanted too.
I'll probably buy the other Lugano boxes some day.

While I'm sure it's wonderful being at the this festival 'live' - where to watch and listen to these musicians play will work very well indeed. However, the problem comes with repeated listening to many of these performances which simply do not stand up. many places sound under-rehearsed (unsurprising), and there is some sloppy ensemble at times(something you will not really notice or be bothered by live) and most importantly, as 'interpretations' - these simply do not compare to the finest out there..

I could not recommend these as a general purchase - if you specifically want these works then look elsewhere - if you are a fan, then fair enough..
