About

A special concert: Martha Argerich plays the Piano Concerto in A Minor by Schumann at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the concert hall where Clara Schumann premiered this masterpiece for the piano only a hundred and sixty years ago.

Clara and her husband's work were triumphantly acclaimed, as was Martha on June 2, 2006. This concert was special for another reason: it was held on the hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the death of Robert Schumann (1810-1856) that Richard Chailly, the conductor of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, decided to celebrate in due form. And what better way of commemorating it than to invite for the occasion the queen of pianists, Martha Argerich?
