The Critic's Chair for 27 October 2013
Cynthia Morahan takes us on a summer journey to Switzerland this week, to the Martha Argerich Project at the Lugano Festival. She delves into the box-set of highlights from last year's festival, recently released on the EMI label. Martha Argerich performs with an all-star cast of chamber musicians from around the world. Highlights include the rarely heard Piano Quintet in C by Nikolai Medtner, and Debussy's La Mer arranged for three pianos.
