Lovingly restored, using the finest state-of-the-art technology, Classic Archive features great performances from legendary artists, offering a unique historical glimpse into our classical music heritage.
This DVD presents two unreleased performances filmed by BBC television in 1977: celebrated pianist Martha Argerich plays the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1, and Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3.
Both pieces are technically demanding and prove to be an ideal vehicle for Argerich’s musical inspiration, demonstrating why she is hailed as one of the world’s leading pianists.
