Here, on the very same album, are recordings made far apart in time by Martha Argerich and Itzhak Perlman: Schumann’s Sonata Op. 105. Live at a concert in Saratoga on 30th July 1998 represents the first meeting between the two giants of the music scene, whereas the rest of the programme was recorded as recently as March 2016. There is romanticism above all with Schumann and Brahms - of course, the only Scherzo movement is in the “F-A-E” Sonata, a work composed jointly between Schumann, Dietrich and Brahms, but movements are commonly played individually. Argerich and Perlman end with Bach’s Baroque romanticism with one of the sonatas for violin and keyboard, where Bach himself wrote out the keyboard part instead of leaving it as a continuo. Written thusly, the score is a duet among equals, and even more so when the equals in question are these two in particular. © SM/Qobuz
