Decca Classics presents the second official joint recording from Seiji Ozawa and Martha Argerich, performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.2, and Ozawa’s first-ever recording of Grieg’s Holberg Suite. Recorded live in concert in Japan in May 2019, it includes a bonus track from Mozart’s Divertimento, K. 136. Argerich and Ozawa first performed together over 40 years ago, when Argerich made her sensational Boston Symphony Orchestra debut. Since then, the artists have developed a deep creative friendship, lighting up concert halls around the world and achieving critical acclaim. The recording is Ozawa’s second international release with the Mito Chamber Orchestra, a hand-picked ensemble of international players drawn from Japan, Europe, and North America.
