Martha Argerich and Nelson Goerner play Debussy and Rachmaninov Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad

About

As part of the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad 2021, the inimitable Martha Argerich and fellow Argentine great Nelson Goerner team up for dynamite piano duos: En blanc et noir by Debussy, and Rachmaninov's scintillating Symphonic Dances. The two keyboard masters bring their instruments into a sparkling repartee, calling and responding and ultimately combining their lyrical voices in a sonorous momentum that fills the Saanen Church with rich resonance.
