The Argentine pianist Martha Argerich has been dazzling audiences for decades with what the New York Times has referred to as ‘prodigious technique with uncanny musicality.’ She is now a regular of the artistic family at the popular Verbier Festival in the Swiss Alps, engaging thousands of followers each summer. Argerich is accompanied in this live recording from the 2009 and 2010 festivals by the gifted Gábor Takács-Nagy and the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra. Works by Beethoven, Scarlatti and Shostakovich take the audience on a whirlwind tour through a small selection of Argerich’s extensive repertoire.
