Argerich and Barenboim Duos

 

Martha Argerich and Daniel Barenboim Piano Duos. Recorded 2014 at the Philharmonie Berlin.  Argerich and Barenboim perform the following pieces:

  1. Mozart Sonata for Two Pianos in D major
  2. Schubert Variations on an Original Theme in A flat major
  3. Stravinsky Le Sacre du printemps  (Rite of Spring) in piano version for 4 hands

Released 2015, disc has 5.1 dts-HD Master Audio sound. Grade: NA

In the August 2015 Gramophone (at page 53), David Fanning dismisses the Rite of Spring here as "not a performance that was ready for recording" but finds the Schubert and the Mozart numbers "effervescent."
