Concerts August 2014

For her much-anticipated return to her home town Buenos Aires in August, and more precisely, her comeback on the stage of the legendary Teatro Colón, Martha Argerich will perform not one, but three concerts with her chum Daniel Barenboim. The first concert will feature Beethoven's first piano concerto, while the second concert will feature both pianists as..... well, pianists. A four-hand piano programme is on the menu, with works by Mozart, Schubert and Stravinsky. For the last concert, the Argentinian comedy-musical group 'Les Luthiers' will join the pianists for a performance of works by Stravinsky and Saint-Saëns.

  1. Wow! That sounds really great. Look at the decoration of this venue! I just love this place. You know I am also going to attend some cultural events in New York. It will be my first visit to NYC so I am quite excited for this trip!
