A true “reference recording”! Breathing new life into an exquisite first masterpiece fro Beethoven. Made listen to an old favorite in a new way. Bravo!
I, minor pianist, am fighting with breast cancer, and this performance really encourages me. Absolutely splendid!!!

Martha is genius, of course, but what really impresses is the vibrancy and clarity in the reduced orchestral forces. It actually sounds better than with full orchestra. Better balance. The acoustics are exquisite. I regret that I was in this hall and didn’t get to hear a concert. The conductor is a gem. How could any human being not be touched by the childish joy in his face? It’s like he is discovering the music for the first time. Delightful!

Maravillóssa intérprete no hay otra igual
I first saw Martha Argerich perform at the Proms in the early 1960’s in London. Who knew she’d be as good as ever in her 80’s like in her 20’s. Clearly she’s having so much fun at the piano. Just look at her joyful expressions she occasionally imparts. Martha has been my favorite pianist of all time.

Into her 8th decade, she has lost none of that nimble, magic, precise touch and speed. Incredible pianist. I am glad to see Beethoven in her repertoire, as I have not seen or heard her play him before. Wonderful.

herr brucvald:
This is just too superb for words. Surely with the smaller orchestra we get closer to what Beethoven's audience originally heard? The dialogue between winds and strings with the smaller orchestra creates different emotions because of the equalization of weight between the two sides. The details shine out here such that we say, 'Here is real music making!' Argerich = divine. (Is she the last of the great Romantic pianists?) All the excessive 'emoting' on the bench by today's pianists turns me right off.

Once in a life time. An amazing pianist.
Christopher Devlin
Christopher Devlin:
To hear this concerto performed with the elasticity of chamber music is wonderful! Fantastic soloists all, and one happens to play the piano. Bonus: Argerich singing solfège sixteenth notes, under her breath, during the final statement of the Rondo theme. Amazing.

Not only are all the artist's involved very good but the video camera work showing all the sections was done beautifully. Great sound quality is very evident as well. Martha and Gabor were just outstanding, their vibrant and melodious style give this performance a true elegance. The 3rd movement is a knock out highlighting Martha's virtuosity.

El piano es antes y después de la maestra Martha Argerich. Siempre ha sido, es y será la diosa del piano. Su musicalidad toca fibras internas que no todos logran tocar cuando se les escucha.

Su impecable técnica, la economía de sus movimientos y muchos aspectos más son parte de su grandeza y majestuosidad.
This is really incredible and so worthy of everyone's respect. It's a lifetime's dedication and passion.

Kudos to the camera people for all the great shots of her hands on the keyboard. Stunning performance.
what beautiful nuance, colors, phrases, everything. Left me thinking even ol' beethoven would have been well pleased with such a performance. he couldn't have asked for more. she, they really brought it alive and made it transcendent like we imagine beethoven's music should be.

I love the sound of a smaller orchestra with the Beethoven concerti sometimes. So much more clarity, less "weighty". I'm sure that hall has something to do with it. Very moving and joyful performance. Brava!
