Itzhak Perlman and Martha Argerich have recorded a historic first studio album together: It has been 18 years since their last album together, a live recital from the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. On that momentous occasion in 1998, the pair performed three of the 19th century’s most ambitious and enthralling works for violin and piano – Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata, the Franck Violin Sonata and Schumann’s Violin Sonata No. 1. The first two sonatas were released in 1999 by EMI Classics (now Warner Classics) in what was the pair’s only recording together until now.
Bach, Johann Sebastian: Sonata for Violin & Harpsichord No. 4 in C minor, BWV1017
Brahms, Johannes: Sonatensatz (Scherzo from the F.A.E. sonata), WoO 2
Violin Sonata No. 1 in A minor, Op. 105 - Live Recording
Fantasiestücke, Op. 73
