What if chamber music returned to its traditional venue: within well-loved artists' homes? Initially, chamber music was composed for the private sphere, but ended up losing part of its essence as this form started performing within venues that gradually expanded.
This program rekindles the origins of the genre by showing itself inside the living rooms of grand artists for original concerts, played in an intimate and privileged setting: at Martha Argerich's in Geneva, with Mischa Maisky. They invite us to hear masterpieces of the chamber repertoire in a new light: Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Frederic Chopin and Johannes Brahms and between each movement, the Argerich confide about her lives and her art to presenter, Annie Dutoit, who has known her since childhood. A tender musical lesson.
