Product Description:

This exciting new album sees legendary pianist Martha Argerich team up with Gidon Kremer, one of the most original and compelling violinists of his generation. Both musicians have had storied careers as soloists, but each also shares a deep dedication to chamber music, as well as promoting talented young artists. Argerich has her yearly Lugano Chamber Music Festival, and Kremer has his Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra, dedicated to fostering outstanding young musicians from the three Baltic states.

This recording captures a live recital from the Berlin Philharmonie on December 11, 2006. The duo begins with Schumann's delicate Sonata for Violin and Piano, then Kremer takes the spotlight for Bartók's devilishly difficult Sonata for Solo Violin. Argerich opens the second half with a solo performance of Schumann's beloved Kinderszenen, before welcoming Kremer out once more to conclude with Bartók's masterpiece First Sonata for Violin and Piano. Two Kreisler encores round out this remarkable program.
