Concerts November 2015

The new Philharmonie de Paris is hosting Argerich's tribute concerts to Claudio Abbado in November. Performing Prokofiev's third piano concerto (fingers crossed!!!), and partnered by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra under the dynamic direction of Andris Nelsons, the concerts promise to be knockout events!

Also noteworthy is the fact that the first concert, on 9 November, is a charity event in aid of the Institut Curie, to aid in its cancer research programme.

Concerts September 2015

Back in Europe after her summer in Argentina and Japan, Martha Argerich will perform Beethoven's second piano concerto in September, with Daniel Barenboim and his Staatskapelle Berlin. With the team, she will make a lightning visit to Vienna's famed Musikverein, followed by two concerts in Berlin.

Concerts August 2015

Following her highly-anticipated return to Argentina in July, Martha Argerich will perform two concerts in Japan. Here's hoping she'll get some well-deserved summer break afterwards!

Concerts July 2015

In July, Martha Argerich will give four concerts in Europe before leaving for Argentina for performances with Daniel Barenboim. And as is the norm now, Argerich will be partnered by longtime friends Mischa Maisky, Myung Whun Chung and Lilya Zilberstein.

Progetto Martha Argerich 2015

The fifteenth edition of Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano pays homage to two legendary pianists, Robert Schumann - a big love of Argerich - and Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli - one of Argerich's mentors. A few of Schumann's rarer works for piano will be featured during the festival, and other highlights include a performance of Debussy's 'En blanc et noir' with one of Argerich's favourite artists, Stephen Kovacevich.

Concerts Season 2014-2015

© Idéale Audience, Intermezzo Films SA
After a summer break, Martha Argerich is scheduled to return to the concert platform with more intensity in the coming 2014-2015 season. As well as a highly anticipated series of concerts with the Berlin Philharmonic in Berlin and Baden-Baden, she will perform with trusted colleagues and old friends such as Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Chailly and Yuri Temirkanov. Oh, and did I mention a long-awaited return to the United States? Los Angeles is the lucky American city which will get to welcome Argerich with open arms for her three performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

I have an inkling more concerts will be added in due course, but what I can reveal for now is that she will perform concertos by Tchaikovsky, Schumann, Beethoven and Haydn, as well as a recital with Gidon Kremer.

Concerts August 2014

For her much-anticipated return to her home town Buenos Aires in August, and more precisely, her comeback on the stage of the legendary Teatro Colón, Martha Argerich will perform not one, but three concerts with her chum Daniel Barenboim. The first concert will feature Beethoven's first piano concerto, while the second concert will feature both pianists as..... well, pianists. A four-hand piano programme is on the menu, with works by Mozart, Schubert and Stravinsky. For the last concert, the Argentinian comedy-musical group 'Les Luthiers' will join the pianists for a performance of works by Stravinsky and Saint-Saëns.

Concerts July 2014

The moment we had all been waiting for arrived a few days ago, in the picturesque Swiss town of Lugano. That's right. Martha Argerich played one of her trusted warhorses, the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1, for the first time in 12 years to wild cheers.

This month, she is scheduled to perform the work again, and again in Switzerland. She will be the featured soloist in the opening concert of the prestigious Verbier Festival in the stunning Swiss Alp resort, with the Verbier Festival Orchestra under Charles Dutoit.
