Tchaikovsky - Klavierkonzert No. 1 B-Moll - Dutoit - Argerich - Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on 180g Import LP
A win at the International Chopin Piano Competition in 1965, at age 24, officially put Martha Argerich on the musical map. An exciting and mercurial artist, Argerich has recorded extensively throughout a career that has encompassed works by Bach through Beethoven, Schumann, Liszt, Debussy, Ravel and Bartók among others.
Here, the multiple Grammy-winner and 2012 Gramophone Hall of Fame inducted Argentinian pianist performs Tchaikovsky's Concerto No. 1 In B Flat Minor For Piano & Orchestra, Op. 23 with accompaniment from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as conducted by Charles Dutoit.
"The very fine sound of the horns right at the start augurs well and the wonderful weight and quality of Martha Argerich's opening of chords suggest that at any rate one need have no worries about the quality of this recording...The present record is really superb. So is Argerich, giving a performance of great range and of much subtlety...Praise must go, too, to the conductor, Dutoit who accompanies excellently and with notably good phrasing." - Gramophone/1971
