For the seventh Lugano Festival, legendary pianist Martha Argerich continues her commitment to showcasing young new talent and exploring lesser-known composers and works. Joining Argerich are frequent collaborators such as Renaud Capuçon, Mischa Maisky, Stephen Kovacevich, while this year also features new faces like Lilya Zilberstein, Alissa Margulis, Nora Romanoff-Schwarzberg, and more! In keeping with the adventurous programming, this set features lesser-known Russian composer Anton Arensky's deeply romantic piano quintet and famed pianist Mikhail Pletnev's Fantasia Elvetica (Swiss Fantasy), as well as chamber works by Piazzola, Janác¡ek, Ravel, Shostakovich, and others. There are also a number of infrequently-played works from staple composers like Mozart, Saint-Saëns, and Rachmaninov.
