About

In a rare event one summer evening in 2008, ever-astonishing Martha Argerich went alone onto the Verbier Festival stage to play Bach’s Second Partita.

To see Martha Argerich perform is an unparalleled experience. The so-called Lionness of the piano is known for her audacity, enthusiasm, and her fiery temperament, both on and off the concert stage, and these qualities made Bach’s Partita crackle with caprice and poetry, with Argerich once more asserts herself as queen of her instrument.
