I have just received a copy of the Lugano concertos which is a compilation of Martha Argerich in concert at her Swiss festival at Lugano. Although most people will have at least some of these recordings this set is well worth getting for the fabulous playing of Argerich live. The orchestral playing is a bit routine but this is more than made up for by the sparkling piano playing. The concertos are really do crackle with energy and fizz. The concertos include Beethoven one and two, Liszt 1, Schumann, Bartok 3 and Prokofiev 1&3. There is also a great performance of the Poulenc Concerto for two pianos and Mozart triple concerto. The fourth disc is interesting as it features works by Schubert, Brahms, Stravinsky and Milhaud.
The playing is really first-class - something I cannot say for the packaging which is absolutely terrible. It is supposed to be a limited edition Deluxe set but it looks as though it has been designed by some trendy person who does not collect CDs themselves. Instead of a box we have a 8 x 5 book in a slipcase which is extremely inconvenient as it does not fit onto a CD shelf in any way. The book is beautifully printed but has an absolutely lousy essay which gives no thoughts to the performers or the music. There are also no texts or translations for the vocal numbers which are included in the set. It is all very annoying but I would still recommend these discs wholeheartedly for the music on them. Argerich is fab!
So five stars is for the music on the discs. Pity about the packaging!

I'm quite surprised no one has reviewed this yet - it seems to me that it is totally unmissable! In fact it is hard to describe how exciting it is. There are some works here that Martha Argerich has not recorded before - Brahms' Liebesliederwalzer, for instance, sung by a larger group than is sometimes heard, which is pure bliss - here it is accompanied by piano 4 hands, and the textures are totally seductive and amazingly clear. Schubert's Divertissement a la hongroise opens this fourth disc with great soul and tenderness, while it is rounded off by the light hijinks of Milhaud's Scaramouche - altogether this last disc is certainly an original combination of works (Stravinsky's Les Noces is the fourth item, where she is one in a line-up of four pianists accompanying a solo group of vocalists and chorus, and very celebratory and rustic it sounds too!). Most buyers, however, will probably want it for the concertos themselves, and I can't imagine more thrilling performances than these of all of them. The Liszt is her first recording of it since her trailblazing account with Abbado in the sixties, but this one seems more exciting - it is absolutely edge-of-your-seat stuff, with Argerich fully realising the expressive potential of every phrase and moulding the sound like plasticine, only to shoot off like a toy shotgun and leave the orchestra scampering to keep up. This performance, and the Prokofiev 3, are for me the highlights - it is pianism of incredible colour and lustre, and delivered with a unique sense of the moment which is what makes her such a superb pianist, that, and her ability to play so accurately at such speed. The Beethoven concertos (1 and 2) took me back to her recording of them with Giuseppe Sinopoli back in about 1984.Read more ›

Despite being regularly labeled as a 'masterpiece' by CD reviews, Schubert's 'Divertissement à l'hongroise in G Minor, D. 818' is rarely recorded or brought to public attention. It's place here is thoroughly deserved and the performance here shows it to be a piece of great beauty, played with remarkable insight by both performers. The other pieces, mostly concertos but not entirely, are similarly great. I don't think that anyone should be without this recording.
