Argerich’s Beethoven No. 2 at Verbier
If you miss the live broadcast of Beethoven piano concerto No. 2 by Martha Argerich and Gabor Takacs-Nagy, you can still watch the video on demand at Medici.tv free for a short period (you will need to log in to watch the whole program. Free sign-up). It’s fascinating performance.
Paul, a member of martha_argerich Yahoo group gave an account of this concert and its rehearsal:
… conductor and soloist came on stage to give a performance of the Beethoven 2nd piano concerto that I am unlikely to forget for a long time to come. I can’t really explain it very well, but believe me when I say that Argerich was really on fire that evening, exceeding all expectations. …
As you could see on the Medici webcast, she smiled often, and I think this speaks for the teamwork that evening.
After watching the video, I totally agree with Paul’s recount. 😀
