Label: WARNER CLASSICS
The annual Progetto Martha Argerich at the Lugano Festival, is well-established as one of the world's most important music festivals. The latest installment of highlights from the Martha Argerich Project at the Lugano Festival, this is the 14th annual 3-CD set celebrating the musical fruits of a project in which young artists join seasoned performers, including Martha Argerich herself, to explore wide-ranging chamber music and orchestral repertoire, both well-known and rarely heard. The 15th annual festival, which ran from 7-30 June 2016, featured international soloists such as Nicholas Angelich, Stephen Kovacevich, and Renaud Capuçon as well as many of her young protégés, including Karin Lechner and Sergio Tiempo, and her daughter Lyda Chen. The festival also celebrated the occasion of Martha's 75th birthday, and she features on many of the performances on this highlights collection, including Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit and Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major.
