The Martha Argerich Project, a series of master classes and concerts given in locations throughout the Swiss town of Lugano, is now in its 13th year. Conceived as a platform for well-known and young musicians to share the stage while playing together, it has launched the career of many a soloist. Tonight's concert features Martha Argerich herself playing with Mischa Maisky and opens with a rarely heard quintet by Anton Rubinstein.
