Martha Argerich & Friends: Live from Lugano 2012

EMI Classics is pleased to release the 10th annual 3CD set of highlights from the Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano, «the delightful festival where youth meets experience and both benefit“ (Gramophone).

"Few recordings capture so well the vivid energy of live performance", writes Nicholas Kenyon in The Observer about the new album.

In addition to Argerich, the performers in 2012 included many familiar names from previous Live from Lugano releases, among them the violinist and cellist brothers Renaud and Gautier Capuçon and pianist Nicholas Angelich, all of whom record for Virgin Classics. The current set also welcomes back Mischa Maisky, Lilya Zilberstein, Polina Leschenko, Dora Schwarzberg, Nora Romanoff-Schwarzberg, Lyda Chen, Ilya Gringolts, Georgio Tomassi, Carlo Maria Griguoli and Alessandro Stella. Newcomers include the pianists Maria João Pires and Nelson Goerner.
