Coming next month from DG.

This time they remembered the pianist. Both of them.

    If I recall correctly, this is a concert that was given back in January. A very quick turn around.

    I’m sure it’ll be terrific.

    His glasses…WTF

    1. Pierre says:

      I think those are by the Belgian maker Théo – they have a really great collection, stylish original and everything – lots of choice 😉

  3. Pedro says:

    Martha was using both hands last Friday at the Paris Philharmonie applauding Nelson Freire in a truly magnificent recital. Less than a month before she did the same in Brussels for Barenboim. True friendship in both cases.

  4. Herr Doktor says:

    She’s a force of nature, incredibly generous of musical spirit, and I believe that in my lifetime I will never hear another pianist who is her equal.

    1. Petros Linardos says:

      I’d say no shortlist of greatest living pianists is complete without her.

      1. Stephen says:

        Is is a pity, though, that several very great composers are missing from her concerts and discography.
