Violinist Gidon Kremer and pianist Martha Argerich are two of the greatest living virtuosos on their instruments and, though they are wholly individualistic players, they get along extremely well together. German Romantic Robert Schumann and Hungarian modernist Béla Bartók don't have much in common at first blush: one is dreamy and poetic, the other brutal and cerebral. But as Kremer and Argerich's recital reveals, one thing Schumann and Bartók have in common is passionate expressivity; the two players bring that quality out no matter which composer's music they're playing. The addition of Kremer and Argerich's extremely soulful readings of Fritz Kreisler's Liebesleid and Schön Rosmarin as encores are like dessert after a heavy meal. It should be noted that the recording here of Kinderszenen is Argerich's first solo recording in three decades.
The Argentine pianist Martha Argerich, now in her late sixties, should be on the endangered species list. She is an extraordinarily valuable and brilliant musician; solo recitals now are almost unknown. The Argerich hunter must track her down to the occasional concerto performance, her annual series at the Lugano Festival, chamber recitals, or any event where she feels safe among friends. At the Proms on August 30 she’ll be playing Ravel and Prokofiev concertos with the Royal Philharmonic and their new music director, Charles Dutoit, her first husband.
