Martha Argerich and Mischa Maisky in Warsaw, 27 08 2010

The National Philharmonic Concert Hall saw performances by two great performers on the same evening, although they did not play together!
Martha Argerich offers a very introspective, romantic interpretation of the concerto, unlike her fire and brimstone playing we are used to.
Mischa Maisky, on the other hand, is his good old self. At the beginning of the first part he gets carried away a bit and misses some notes, but that's why we love live recordings, right?

The concert was part of the Chopin and His Europe Festival.
