Since 1990, the legendary Martha Argerich has performed an awe-inspiring 26 times at the Ruhr Piano Festival with a variety of chamber-music ensembles – and each of these concerts was a unique experience! Our era’s grande dame of virtuoso piano-playing has been collaborating with violinist Gidon Kremer and cellist Mischa Maisky for more than 40 years. These three dedicated musicians are completely attuned to one another. “When we perform together, it’s as if we were in love with one another”, Gidon Kremer once said of Martha Argerich, with Mischa Maisky confessing that: “I would love to record the entire repertoire for cello and piano with Martha!” It is almost astonishing that this all-star trio of Argerich, Kremer and Maisky have only ever performed once before at the festival in this specific configuration, namely in Duisburg in 2001. So, it is all the more gratifying that we will get to see them together again on stage in February to celebrate Gidon Kremer’s 75th birthday.

That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.
