Description
This first new release in ten years from Martha Argerich and the late Maestro Claudio Abbado was also their first traversal together of concertos by Mozart. The legendary duo recorded both works live at the 2013 Lucerne Festival. Written in D Minor, the darkly dramatic Concerto No. 20, K.466 has a stormy, operatic temperament that prefigures the music of Don Giovanni. With its majestic, radiant opening and a march reminiscent of the "Marseillaise," Concerto No. 25 in C Major, K.503 is the culmination of the 12 transcendent concertos Mozart wrote in Vienna between 1784 and 1786.

"Overwhelmingly beautiful. Argerich digs deeply into the keys, but never makes an ugly sound. Her subtle shaping with Abbado of the central movement in the D minor concerto is slow but serene, and the way she lifts the final simple phrases of the coda is heartbreaking."—The Observer

"The tidy sheen of the Orchestra Mozart's young professionals tells us plenty about his genius as an orchestral trainer. And his rapport with the mercurial Argerich ... is audible in every bar…. In the C major concerto, No 25, Argerich's light, playful attack is immediately apparent; so is the orchestra's suavity."—The Times (London)
