Martha Argerich is joined at the Lugano Festival by friends in a performance of Schumann's Andante and Variations for two pianos, two cellos and horn. One of the themes of the 11th Martha Argerich Project at the 2012 Lugano Festival was compositions based on composers' reworkings and, in the third of this week's four programmes, Godowsky reworks Weber, Busoni revises a Bach chorale and Gabriela Montero improvises on Gershwin's 'Summertime'.
