AllMusic Review by

For this 2015 box set, Deutsche Grammophon has collected all of Martha Argerich's recordings released on DG and Philips from 1960 to 2014, including live recordings of piano concertos she performed at the Lugano Festival, and her 1960 Chopin recordings for radio broadcast. The variety of her albums has always shown her curiosity about the piano repertoire and commitment to working with other artists, so whether it has been in her solo recordings, chamber performances with famous and rising artists, or concertos with the world's foremost conductors and orchestras, Argerich has demonstrated an openness to different approaches and a spirit of adventure. All of the 48 CDs are presented in cardboard sleeves featuring original cover art, and the cube-shaped package also offers a booklet of articles, photos, and specially commissioned sketches of Argerich.
