Having seen her Lugano fest close for lack of Swiss francs, the inspirational pianist has been asked to curate a festival of her own with the Hamburg Symphony.
Martha will play four-hand with Daniel Barenboim and various chamber works with Mischa Maisky,Thomas Hampson, Ivry Gitlis and her own daughters, Lyda Chen and Annie Dutoit. Barenboim’s son Michael will also take part.
The festival starts on June 25.
