About

Performances by pianist Martha Argerich are such a rarity that they invariably cause a sensation. Here, the acclaimed Argentinian pianist, nicknamed the "Lioness of piano" for her audacious performances, is captured at the Verbier Festival in the summer of 2008.

She gives a transformative performance of Bach's Second Partita before being joined on stage by her frequent musical partners, fellow pianist Stephen Kovacevitch and cellist Mischa Maisky for music by Mozart.
