Barcode: 0825646235940

Composer: Sergei Rachmaninoff
Other participants: Nelson Goerner, Lylia Zilberstein, Gabriela Montero, Alexander Mogilevsky

Martha Argerich’s long career has taken in many outstanding solo performances, but she has often professed to feeling ‘lonely’ on stage. This CD showcases the area in which she feels truly at home: her extensive and fruitful collaborations with other first-class musicians. Among the many younger pianists she has taken under her wing at her academy in Lugano are Lylia Zilberstein, who rose to fame in the 1990s and whose sparkling playing is also featured on this disc, as well as Nelson Goerner, whose collaboration with Argerich in Rachmaninov’s nostalgic Symphonic Dances is released here for the first time.

Gramophone Editor's Choice: "There are few finer versions anywhere of each title...A Rachmaninov-fest to savour."
