[ Warner Classics / 22 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Tuesday 18 September 2018

The collection comprises of all live recordings of Martha Argerich at the Lugano Festival joined by a sublime company of many other outstanding artists and featuring a broad variety of genres and works composed by Robert Schumann, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Maurice Ravel, Ludwig van Beethoven, Sergei Rachmaninov, Johannes Brahms and Dimitri Shostakovich.

Reviewing the 2011 Live from Lugano release, Nicholas Kenyon wrote in The Observer, "There are not many reliable annual treats among classical CDs these days, but the series of live recordings from Martha Argerich's Lugano festival are now a highlight of each year." Andrew Clark in the Financial Times wrote, "Every June [Argerich] and a clutch of friends and protégés make music in a style that reflects her free spirit and total dedication. Even when Argerich is not playing, she seems to inspire the performance."

"they tread the fine line between the immediacy and drama of live performance and the accuracy needed for the repeat listening of recorded performance with great dexterity. Each performance on the discs of the 2012 festival is so immaculate that it is an unfailing surprise when the applause appears at the end of a track" (Gramophone Editor's Choice August 2013 on 2012 recording)
