Martha Argerich & Lahav Shani
Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Ravel
Martha Argerich, the iconic pianist, has returned to the Easter Festival almost every year since its inception. This year, she will share the stage with Lahav Shani, a simply prodigious pianist and conductor, for an exceptional two-piano recital.
Working as a team, the sparks of their shared genius pop off the stage.
Rachmaninov’s romantically rich Sonata for Two Pianos is a walk in the park for them as is the silky texture of Ravel’s La Valse, not to mention the so called “Classical” Symphony No. 1 by a young Prokofiev, who wrote this amusing tribute to Bach and Haydn in 1917, mischievously arranged for this performance by two pianos!
