Unique: Martha Argerich and Itzhak Perlman
The two living legends of piano and violin, Martha Argerich and Itzhak Perlman
, recently met to record a new album together which will be released later in the year on Warner Classics
. It will be their first studio recording. It has been almost twenty years since they recorded a sonata album live from the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Reason enough for us to make the recording of 1998 the Recording of the Week.
At the recital in 1998 they played the three most famous sonatas showing the richness and diversity of the 19th century in music – the Kreutzer Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven, the Violin Sonata by Cesar Franck, and Robert Schumann’s Violin Sonata No. 1. The sonatas by Beethoven and Franck were released on Warner Classics as the only recording of these two legendary musicians so far.
We are looking forward to the new album with works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Schumann, and Johannes Brahms!
