In 1949, two young Argentinian child prodigies met and made music together for the first time, the rest, as they say, is history. In continuation of Martha Argerich’s birthday celebrations, we announce a new album from Daniel Barenboim and Martha Argerich, performing selected works by Claude Debussy.

Daniel Barenboim also brings back two of his closest collaborators, Michael Barenboim for the Violin Sonata in G minor and rising star Kian Soltani for the Cello Sonata in D minor - two young musicians he knows very well from their critically-acclaimed recordings and concerts in recent years at Pierre Boulez Saal, Berlin. All recordings were made in 2018, to mark the 100th anniversary of the great French composer’s death.

The album is set to be released on 4 June 2021 and is available for pre-order now. Listen to the first pre-release track Debussy: La Mer – De l’aube à midi sur la mer now!
