Music Millennium

In 1961, Ruggiero Ricci was already a world famous violin soloist. He asked the up-and-coming pianist Martha Argerich, then only 19, to join him on a tour to Russia. Presented here is the radio broadcast of their second Leningrad recital. The first was already released by DOREMI (DHR-8040). The recital took place on April 22, 1961. All items of this live performance presentation are recorded here for the first time. "Her concerts conjure up scenes from another place and time; grown men running down the aisles clutching bouquets, world-renowned musicians pummeling the railings of the upper boxes, jaded critics breaking into foolish smiles." So ran Alex Ross's rhapsodic description of a Martha Argerich recital
