D. Shostakovich: Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and String Orchestra in C minor No 1, Op. 35

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 will perform Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, incorporating motifs from Siegfried, the third “music drama” from the Ring of the Nibelung tetralogy. The most famous work by the Romantic-era French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, The Carnival of the Animals, is performed here by a piano duo with narration by the philologist and actress Annie Dutoit. Meanwhile, Shostakovich’s Concerto places the spotlight on both piano and trumpet.
