Together at last – Argerich and Perlman record their first studio album together

Martha Argerich and Itzhak Perlman has made one album together before, a recording of a live recital from Saratoga Performing Arts Center, which was made in 1998. But they have not made a studio album together until now. On September 30 their recordings of Bach's Violin Sonata No 4, BWV1017, Brahms's Scherzo in C minor, and Schumann's Violin Sonata No1 and Fantasiestücke, Op 73, will be released by Warner Classics. An interview with Perlman and Argerich, plus footage from the recording sessions below:

Edward Greenfield reviewed Argerich and Perlman's previous release for Gramophone, and noted: 'Some may resist the expressive freedom, whether in phrasing, rubato or in fluctuations of tempo, but the magnetism will for most be irresistible, even when the playing is not immaculate... This is intensely vital music-making, thrillingly captured on the wing.'
