HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Robert Schumann – Violin Sonatas 1 & 2 (Argerich/Kremer)

Can Martha Argerich do no wrong? I have so many of her recordings, and what seems to distinguish them is intensity of feeling. When she teams up with Mischa Maisky the results are wonderful, and here with Gidon Kremer no less so. Schumann found no greater solace than music-making with his pianist wife, Clara, and close friends in the reclusion of his home. So it was scarcely surprising that his thoughts should have reverted to chamber-music. The A minor Violin Sonata was written in 1851.

HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Martha Argerich & Claudio Abbado – Complete Concerto Recordings (6 x 180g Remastered Vinyls)

Many thanks to our friend Urbanox for this stunning box
With this special edition DG pays tribute to an extraordinary musical partnership. The 6LP box set collects all the concerto recordings made by pianist Martha Argerich with conductor Claudio Abbado over more than 45 years. Their final meeting on stage took place at the Lucerne Festival at Easter 2013, where they performed two Mozart concertos. This special occasion was recorded, and the release was not only highly praised but is also Deutsche Grammophon’s most successful release of 2014 so far.
Martha Argerich and Claudio Abbado got to know each other through Friedrich Gulda, with whom they both studied in the late 1950s. Their close collaboration in the studio began in 1967 with Argerich’s brilliant concerto-debut release of the Prokofiev Third and Ravel G major. Each recording since then has been a success, as much with the critics as on a commercial level.
