This inexpensively priced 3-CD set of music from the 2006 Lugano Festival with pianist Martha Argerich at its center presents a fascinating cross-section of chamber music, expertly performed. In addition to Argerich, we hear from 15 other instrumentalists – pianists, cellists, violinists, violists, a flugelhorn player (who plays along with Argerich in three of Schumann's Fantasiestücke, to very strange and not very welcome effect), and a wind ensemble made up of members of the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana that plays with cellist Gautier Caupcon in Friedrich Gulda's Concerto for Cello and Wind Orchestra: a jazzy, definitely eclectic, and playful finale to the third CD. The infrequently played but rapturous Schumann Piano Quartet is a particular treat. Ravel's transcriptions of two Debussy Nocturnes for two pianos played by Sergio Tiempo and Karin Lechner are a delight as well. This is an off-the-beaten-track collection that will fascinate true devotees of chamber music. --Robert Levine

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
EMI has gotten into the pleasanat habit of issuing a 3-CD bargain box of Martha Argerich's summer music from Lugano, and they are caviar for chamber music lovers, mixing familiar and unfamiliar works in sterling live performances. It's hard to think of any comparable series meeting such high standards since the heyday of the Marlboro Festival under Rudolf Serkin in the Fifties and Sixties. This 2006 edition is no exception, my only disappointment being the absence of Argerich herself in so many works. She even gives up her place in the two-piano arrangement of Debussy's Nocturnes to her protege Sergio Tiempo (she has been a long-time devotee, if not addict, of two-piano arrangements that almost every other major pianist neglects).

The dominance here of works by Schumann reflects Ms. Argerich's personal fondness for him, and she appears in the Piano Quartet, which has enjoyed a wonderful, highly personal reading by Glenn Gould and the Juilliard Qt. (Sony), among others. This one displays every virtue of live musicmaking, with Argerich's fervent, spontaneous playing leading the way. Compared to earlier sets, the 2006 collection contains more rarities and less representation of great composers. The flugelhorn arrangement of Schumann's Fantasiestucke for clarinet sounds like a joke. The once unknown Tanayev Piano Quintet gets a committed reading that should help to boost its popularity. The Debbusy Nocturnes bring pleasure in the two-piano arrangement. You won't be prepared for Gulda's Concerto for Cello and Piano, which sounds like three-beer night at your local German jazz club. But it's worth a smile and a listen.

I have to know God is generous because he put Martha Argerich in this world and kept her alive. I cherish the picture of fourteen year old Argerich with Friedrich Gulda in Vienna which appears in her DGG solo box booklet. Some associations matter because they increase the joy of millions. The third CD in this 2006 Lugano set ends with a surprising composition of Friedrich Gulda. It is a surprise because I have heard Gulda's jazz CDs and feel who cares? But his cello concerto is like nothing I have heard and the superb performance - Gautier Capucon's cello is ALIVE - should lead to its becoming played in concerts as it should be because it is a durable composition that continues to delight hearing after hearing.

I learned Alfred Schniittke is a first rate composer, thanks to the searing playing of Alissa Marguilis and Polina Leschenko.

Don't diminish your life by listening to the Taneyev Piano Quintet only once. I first heard a pianist I love, Lilya Zilberstein, in the DGG original Complete Chopin. But I wonder if Argerich is responsible for her being included in that set because all the musicians in this 2006 Lugano are extremely good. For sure, Martha Argerich is going straight to Heaven, but please, no hurry. I lived in Paris for the 80's. I regret I did not take pains to hear Argerich and Anne Sophie von Otter.

Thanks to Amazon I can afford to buy these marvelous CDs.

I listened to the brief excerpts available on Amazon and was convinced I would find this uplifting and was regrettably disappointed.
