Itzhak Perlman and Martha Argerich Record Bach, Schumann and Brahms
Posted Sep 28, 2016 by itzhakperlman

In a rare meeting of musical minds in Paris last month, Itzhak Perlman and Martha Argerich found the time in their demanding schedules to record a new album, “Bach, Schumann and Brahms” to be released this Friday, September 30, 2016 on Warner Classics.

“Martha is the most amazing pianist,” says Itzhak Perlman of his recital partner. “It’s always been my dream to make music with her… We thought of completing that recording from 1998 by making another record almost 20 years later.

“Working with Martha was a unique experience for me …Her brilliance and the colours she uses when she plays are recognisable as soon as you hear them – it’s her; nobody else sounds like that… I am so excited that we were actually able to record together again… When this possibility came along that she might be able to have a couple of days free to record I said, ‘I’ll go any place!’”

Martha Argerich added: “I feel so stimulated to play with Itzhak, it’s really a feast – fantastic! It’s a very special relationship, I am completely enchanted.”

Martha Argerich and Itzhak Perlman’s New Album Coming in September

The two living legends of piano and violin, Martha Argerich and Itzhak Perlman recorded a new album together which will be released on September 31, 2016 by Warner Classics. The new album will include works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Robert Schumann, and Johannes Brahms!

It will be their first studio recording. It has been almost twenty years since they recorded a sonata album live from the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. At the recital in 1998 they played the three most famous sonatas showing the richness and diversity of the 19th century in music – the Kreutzer Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven, the Violin Sonata by Cesar Franck, and Robert Schumann’s Violin Sonata No. 1. The sonatas by Beethoven and Franck were released on Warner Classics as the only recording of these two legendary musicians so far.

We are looking forward to Itzhak Perlman’s forthcoming album with another living legend – Martha Argerich.
