The recordings have been remastered and are presented in chronological order, as originally programmed, with the original LP cover art on the individual sleeves.

When Deutsche Grammophon released the first volume (of solo recitals) in this series to celebrate the recordings of Martha Argerich, it became a best-seller. This was followed by a collection of the pianist's concerto recordings, and now, the third collection of chamber ensemble works will be released. The CDs are packaged with original LP-cover artwork along with new liner notes and a host of rare photos and each recording has been newly mastered to ensure the highest quality listening experience.
Since she won the seventh International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in 1965 at the age of 24, this Argentine concert pianist has mostly avoided the limelight; she remains, however, one of the greatest interpreters of classical music. Included here are a scintillating array of concertos: Prokofiev's Concerto no. 3 in C major op. 26 ; Liszt's Piano Concerto no. 1 ; Mendelssohn's Concerto for Violin, Piano and String Orchestra in D minor ; Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto no. 1 , and more. Technically brilliant…passionately rendered!

Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich is widely regarded as one of the greatest pianists of the second half of the twentieth century. In celebration of her 75th birthday, Sony Classical is pleased to release Martha Argerich The Complete Sony Classical Recordings, a new 5-CD original jackets collection featuring two albums available for the first time on CD remastered from the original analogue tapes. Argerich rose to international prominence when she won the seventh International Chopin Competition in Warsaw in 1965 at age 24. In that same year, she debuted in the U.S. in Lincoln Center s Great Performers Series.
Packaging-wise and title-wise, the Rhino label's Hip Hop: The Collection is as generic as they come, but after that, all complaints are minimal. Get it at the right price, and it doesn't even matter that the theme is mega-broad and that the T.I. hit isn't one everyone knows, because when a collection goes from Afrika Bambaataa's seminal electro-rap "Planet Rock… Don't Stop" to Missy Elliot's "Get Ur Freak On" with barely any filler in the middle, the freak is on and the planet is certainly rocked. The set jumps time periods at will, and yet the sequencing works, so consider it a time capsule or a portable party, because it's both.
60 Classics rock tracks from the Warner stable of artists, featuring Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner, Chicago, ZZ Top & many more.
