Martha Argerich and Itzhak Perlman have made one album together before, a recording of a live recital from Saratoga Performing Arts Center, which was made in 1998. But they have not made a studio album together until now. On September 30th, their recordings of Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 4 BWV1017, Brahms’s Scherzo in C minor, Schumann’s Violin Sonata No. 1 and Fantasiestücke, Op 73 will be released by Warner Classics.
