...her own infallible, glistening clarity and sheer glee at Beethoven’s brilliance and wit was met by gentle playing too, subtle enough to hint at the unpredictable, and to make us wonder whether we had ever actually heard this piece before.

Audiences at The Bridgewater Hall thrilled to Martha Argerich’s tender, contemplative playing of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No 1, with Manchester Camerata, Gábor Takács-Nagy and framed by two pieces from guest pianist David Kadouch. Back in the city after almost 50 years, Argerich responded to Manchester’s heartfelt standing ovation with a welcome encore.
