World-renowned Argentinean pianist Martha Argerich is set to give a rare performance at the Bridgewater Hall on 12 July, as part of the Manchester International Festival (MIF).
Argerich will join Gábor Takács-Nagy, David Guerrier and Manchester Camerata for Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No 1. French pianist David Kadouch will perform Bartók’s Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste, and Arvo Pärt’s Lamentate.
Argerich is known for her selective concert appearances. Widely regarded as one of the greatest living concert pianists, her MIF concert is likely to be one of the pianistic highlights of the year.
