Reviews

‘The conjunction of Martha Argerich and Giuseppe Sinopoli in Beethoven produces performances which give off electric sparks, daring and volatile. Argerich’s contribution in phrase after phrase brings highly individual pointing … Very distinctive and stimulating performances.’ Penguin Guide to Compact Discs, 1996

‘Martha Argerich, piano. What is there to say? These accounts of Beethoven’s first two concertos remain very highly regarded and for good reason. They are exciting as hell.’ Classics Today, 2012
