Argerich, Abbado and the BPO waste no time in "putting it out there" for the wonderful, live audience, but it does take a little while for the audience and all the performers to totally connect. Once they are hooked up, the space simply electricifies in one of those all-too-seldom, world class performaces of a great work.
At one point, as Argerich begins to really linger over some notes and phrases, you can hear and feel her anticipating the audience, which defferentially (and oh-so-wisely), silently gives her leave to do as likes. And what she likes is to make love to and from this remarkable piece.
Hard to believe the incredible level of interplay and all that went into this performance in terms of pure, artistic effort. I wonder if after the performance everyone floated around for days, or if they were totally spent and laid out flat for a week.
It does sound as if the interpretation here is simply "different'; but it is also "better" for it.
