La grande Martha ne cède jamais mieux au vertige de la scène que lorsqu'elle est accompagnée: le chambrisme et la conversation musicale sont sa vraie nature. Tout s'accomplit au sommet comme s'il s'agissait d'un instant béni, offert en partage entre les artistes, pour le public . . . Prenez ce coffret magnifiquement composé; 13 cd éclairent cette affection magicienne de la pianiste dont le jeu flexible et caressant, sauvage et liquide s'accorde idéalement à son partenaire . . . [Maisky]: ce violoncelle qui parle comme un c¿ur sincère, ne s'autorisant aucun épanchement hors sujet, aimante littéralement le piano enfantin et subtil de Martha dans cd 2 Beethoven, toujours énoncés et habités avec une introspection ciselée . . . De ce collier de perles discographiques, le Schumann est pour l'île déserte. Coffret événement: indispensable à ce prix.
