An Unforgettable Evening with Martha Argerich and Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, led by Sir Antonio Pappano

It was an unforgettable evening at Symphony Hall when Celebrity Series welcomed legendary pianist Martha Argerich and the powerful Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, led by Sir Antonio Pappano, to the stage last Sunday, and the critics wholeheartedly agree. For those who were unable to join us, and for those who wish to relive the experience, we invite you to browse the evening’s reviews as well as our favorite photos, captured by Celebrity Series photographer Robert Torres.

We also extend a special thanks to Sunday’s performance sponsor, Zachary Haroutunian and The Garbis & Arminé Barsoumian Charitable Foundation, in loving memory of Garbis Barsoumian.
