In 1949, two Argentinian child prodigies met and made music together for the first time - Martha Argerich and Daniel Barenboim - the rest, as they say, is history. Childhood friends, they rank as two of the world's golden musicians as well as incomparable pianists, and over the years they have developed a close artistic partnership. To celebrate her 80th birthday, Argerich releases her first recording of Debussy's Fantaisie accompanied by Maestro Barenboim and "his" Staatskapelle Berlin.

REVIEWS:

Michael Barenboim and Kian Soltani are the concertmaster and principal cellist of the Barenboim-founded West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, so the stellar quality of their playing is no more a surprise than Barenboim’s richly detailed and hyper-alert accompanying which never dominates proceedings.

– BBC Magazine

It seems the Fantaisie is work utterly suited to Argerisch's febrile virtuosity and there’s a freshness to her playing that utterly belies her years, while her sense of shading and dynamic is a constant delight.

– Gramophone
