About Playlist

The Qobuz ideal discography offers a wide selection of recordings particularly important in phonographic history, in all genres (operas, piano, baroque music, orchestra), depending on their availability naturally. Very great classics (Chopin's Valses by Lipatti, Ravel and Prokofiev's Concertos by Argerich, Strauss's Lieder by Schwarzkopf / Szell, Puccini's Bohemia by Pavarotti, Freni, Karajan) and others as essential but rarer (Mazurkas and Scriabin sonatas by Samuel Feinberg and Igor Zhukov, Gelber's Beethoven by Denon), or favourites related to particular repertoires. A splendid and fascinating discography that you can explore in detail if you definitely make the choice of the Qobuz streaming subscription.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

by François Hudry, translated by Abigail Church

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.

In tune with the younger generation
Martha Argerich has always supported young musicians and has never hesitated to use her own money to promote promising talents. One cannot forget the controversial stance she took at the 1980 Chopin Competition, where she slammed the jury’s door with a loud bang when Croatian pianist Ivo Pogorelich was eliminated in the second round, earning him the best publicity of his career. The Argentinian pianist also supported her young colleague Hélène Grimaud in her early days. Over the last decade, Martha Argerich has been heavily involved in the “Progetto Martha Argerich” in Lugano, a kind of perpetual laboratory with the concerts as the showcase for the results. Many young musicians gather under her leadership to prepare great chamber music together with a group of loyal musicians who attend every year to support the first steps of very young artists from all over the world.

This magnificent concept, which has culminated in years of concert recordings and publications, was terminated in 2016 following the withdrawal of its main sponsor, a Swiss-Italian bank. However, the pianist has many connections and since 2018 she has been invited to organise a new “Martha Argerich Festival” in Hamburg. Energetic as ever as she approaches her 80th birthday, she performed eleven concerts with her daughters as well as Khatia Buniatishvili, Maria João Pires, Renaud Capuçon, Edgar Moreau, Mischa Maisky and the Orchestre symphonique de Hambourg, conducted by Sylvain Cambreling.

It is probably her generous spirit and passion for music that keeps this incredible woman alive. Her artistic flair and dexterity has never wavered over the years. She is a true phenomenon and a shining example for budding young pianists.
