Grieg, Sonata for cello and piano in a minor, Op. 36 - Martha Argerich, Mischa Maisky - Verbier Festival
Available on iTunes
An intellectual miracle, magical sonorities, an incredible sense of risk: this is what comes to mind when seeing Martha Argerich. The one that has been nicknamed the "Lioness of piano" has lost nothing of her audacity, her spiritedness and her fiery temperament. Known for her heightened sense of friendship, Martha Argerich has been playing for a long time alongside Stephen Kovacevitch or Mischa Maisky. By Kovacevitch's side, with four hands or on two pianos, she rediscovers Mozart's innocence and candor. With a secret understanding and sometimes gently mocking each other, both players are like children when playing Mozart. Micha Maisky's intense lyrical bow brings out a more impetuous and authoritarian Martha Argerich. Programme: Johann Sebastian Bach Partita No. 2 in C Minor, BWV 826 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Andante and five variations for four hands Piano in G Major, K. 501 - Edvard Grieg Sonata for Cello and Piano in A Minor, Op. 36
