GREETINGS FROM BUENOS AIRES!
On 11 March Deutsche Grammophon releases a live recording of another of the legendary concerts that Daniel Barenboim and Martha Argerich have given in the Teatro Colón – in this case in the summer of 2015.
The programme was recorded in July during the second “Festival de Música y Reflexión” that Daniel Barenboim established in 2014 in his native Argentina. Following the outstanding success of last year’s inaugural album, Daniel Barenboim and Martha Argerich elected to perform chamber music together in the city of their birth. On the programme were works for two pianos: Debussy’s arrangement of Schumann’s Six Studies in Canon Form, Debussy’s own En blanc et noir and Béla Bartók’s Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. According to an enthusiastic Argentine press, “One year on, the exciting encounter between the lively Martha and the masterly Daniel has once again produced magnificent and indeed fabulous results. There was magic from the first note onwards.”
