Martha Argerich in Montreal
Video Artists International takes great pride in the home video release of a very special concert by Martha Argerich, a legend among living pianists. In 1976, Miss Argerich was in the studios of the CBC Montreal network where she performed the Schumann Piano Concerto, Liszt’s Funérailles and Ravel’s Jeux d’eau.
The concerto receives a patrician performance with all the tonal beauty one would expect from this remarkable artist. The Ravel also benefits from her gorgeous tonal palette and evenness of touch. It is in the Liszt that one experiences the staggering virtuosity that is the other element of Argerich’s art. The left-hand octave passages in Funérailles are played with such awesome speed that the video cameras could barely capture the movement of the hand. As exhilarating to watch as to hear, Argerich on television is a major addition to the recorded work of one of the foremost talents of our day.
