The MARTHA ARGERICH PROJECT, promoted by the Lugano Festival, RSI Rete Due and BSI Bank, has now reached its fourteenth edition, bringing together fifty or so different artists around a great pianist. Conceived as a sort of ensemble music gymnasium, the event takes the form of a laboratory, inviting “Artists in residence” to rise to challenges of compositions of rare performance, alongside repertory masterpieces. This has resulted in the creation of an original model, based on a particularly enthusiastic group of interpreters, seeking to put their skills and competences to the test in an exciting exchange of experiences. And this will be enjoyed not only by the local public, but also by that further away, thanks to the radio broadcasts on Swiss and other European aerials, and, of course, on disc. WARNER recording studios will this year too be presenting the best of each edition in a CD set offering a summary of some of the most important moments of the event.
