It is universally agreed that there is no greater living pianist than Martha Argerich. On this mammoth and beautifully presented 48-disc box set . . . you'll hear the music that convinced the modern classical world of the 71-year old pianist's supremacy beginning in the '60s . . . Her 1977 recording of Stravinsky's "Les Noces" with Leonard Bernstein and 1981 recording of Bartok's Concerto for Two Pianos, Percussion and Orchestra with Nelson Freire and David Zinman are as Olympian as her performances of Beethoven and Brahms. Nothing seems to daunt her . . . [she has] become in our 21st century world the pianist who prevails, in many views, over all others. In this gigantic box set, anyone who can understand why that is.

Few collections of 48 CDs could contain so many legendary recordings, so many performances that remain a yardstick by which others are judged . . . [Tchaikovsky / Piano Concerto no. 1]: Argerich has recorded the Tchaikovsky three times . . . and each performance is highly individual and deeply admired. All are in this set . . . tender, poetic but brilliant accounts of Schumann's "Kinderszenen" and "Kreisleriana".

. . . undoubtedly the most successful releases are included in this box set. The rare solo recordings are here, as are the concerto recordings with Claudio Abbado -- which are by far the best she ever did. The sonata recordings with violinist Gidon Kremer are models of musical intensity, while cellist Mischa Maisky never had a better partner . . . [a] monument of a true living legend.

Le coffret très complet sur les goûts et le jardin secret de la pianiste légendaire comprend en fin de cycle plusieurs enregistrements des débuts chez DG, propres aux années 1960 d'où se distinguent ses lectures hypnotiques de Frédéric Chopin, compositeur de la nuit comme elle. Parmi les pépites remarquables de ce coffret événement, citons son duo avec Nicolas Economou . . . des transcriptions rares telles les exceptionnelles "Ma Mère l'Oie" et la "Rhapsodie espagnole" pour pianos et percus réalisées avec Nelson Freire, son frère en musique . . . Parmi les dernières offrandes discographiques, les Concertos 20 et 25 de Mozart fixés en 2013 avec Abbado, un an avant la disparition du maestro italien, restent incontournables. Coffret événement.

Soigné, le livret est joliment ponctué par une série de dessins. L'envie de musique, la pulsion qui devient pulsation et ne s'affaiblit pas une seconde, cinq décennies durant, avec les amis Maisky, Freire, Kovacevich, Kremer, Abbado, se passent de commentaires et d'éloges.
