mozart / schubert / stravinsky piano duosDeutsche Grammophon
Reuniting after more than 15 years, renowned conductor/pianist Daniel Barenboim and pianist Martha Argerich come together on the new recording Piano Duos, on Deutsche Grammophon. Released on Barenboim's new digital label, Peral Music, the album has hit #1 on the iTunes Pop Charts in Argentina and #1 on iTunes Classical Chart in Argentina, Brazil, Switzerland, and Italy. Barenboim and Argerich have a long-standing friendship that dates back to when they were children growing up in Buenos Aires and performing at the home of Ernesto Rosenthal, which was the local haven for chamber music nights. Soon they went their separate ways and focused on their careers which included reuniting in the 1980s while Barenboim was music director of the Orchestre de Paris. Now, the duo pairs up again for this live recording which took place at Berlin's Philharmonie this past April. A magical moment in the history of classical music, Piano Duos captures the highly anticipated and well-received reunion, with the music of Mozart, Schubert and Stravinsky.
