Martha Argerich And Claudio Abbado The Complete Concerto Recordings on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 6LP Box Set + Download
With this special numbered limited edition vinyl box set, Deutsche Grammophon pays tribute to an extraordinary musical partnership. The rich 180g 6LP-set collects all of the concerto recordings made by pianist Martha Argerich together with conductor Claudio Abbado over four decades time and covers works by Prokofiev, Ravel, Chopin, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Mozart. Famous orchestras accompanying the pair here include the Berliner Philharmoniker, London Symphony Orchestra, Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Orchestra Mozart.
"While Abbado provides excellent support with his various orchestras, the collector buys foremost the passionate wizardry of Martha Argerich and her thorough synthesis of a demonic technique and volatile subjectivity into every piece she encounters. Argerich has consistently combined virile aggression and poetic tenderness in a delicately balanced alchemy, often with electrifying results." - Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition
“Between them Argerich and Abbado generate a heady world of romance and electricity." - BBC Music Magazine
