BBC Music Magazine announces the awards for 2008.
Disc of the Year & Instrumental Award
Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Nos 28 & 29
I heard of her performance in some works from Mozart, Chopin and Schubert, but I never have owned her CDs. Maybe I’d check this out.
And the rest of the winners are
Shostakovich: Piano Concerto no. 1; Conertino for two Pianos; Piano Quintet
I have two Argerich’s recordings of Shostakovich’s piano concerto No. 1, but not this recording, which is the most recent one recorded in 2006 Lugano Festival. On my to-buy list.
