Christian Arming conducts the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra with great vitality, and Martha Argerich is joined on stage by the renowned Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, as well as Gulda’s sons Paul and Rico, who accompany her in a jubilant performance of Mozart’s Concerto for three pianos in F major, K.242.
