Ever since winning the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1965, legendary Argentine pianist Martha Argerich has been a commanding figure on the concert stage, whether as a soloist or performing with the world’s greatest musicians, orchestras and conductors. Her interpretations of the piano repertoire of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century are particularly highly regarded. The harmony of playing in a group gives her “a strong and peaceful feeling” she says. On this occasion she performs with an outstanding Hungarian ensemble, the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra of Budapest. In the first part of the concert they will perform Divertimento in D major by W. A. Mozart and the most famous work by the Romantic-era French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, The Carnival of the Animals, with a piano duo with narration by the philologist and actress Annie Dutoit. Meanwhile, the second part will consist F. Liszt’s “Angelus” for strings and Shostakovich’s Concerto which places the spotlight on both piano and trumpet.
