Argerich is now approaching her 70th birthday – on the 5th of June this year. One of the releases marking this occasion is a further instalment in the very successful Martha Argerich Collection (already available: Solo Recordings, Concerto Recordings, Chamber Ensemble Recordings) with a set devoted to her complete recordings for the Philips label.

Here we find her in partnership with Stephen Kovacevich and Nelson Freire, with discs of two-piano and piano duet works. Then there are the classic live recordings of the Tchaikovsky First and, above all, the Rachmaninov Third Concertos, with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra under Riccardo Chailly; as well as an inimitable Carnival of the Animals (with Freire, Kremer, Maisky and others).

Schubert and Schumann works for cello and piano feature Mischa Maisky.
