    CD of the Week
    We don't always pick a CD of the week on Drive, but occasionally one skims onto our crowded desk and the music is so appealing that Liz has to play something from it every day. This week, it's Maria Joao Pires: Complete Concerto Recordings.
    This collection brings together all of Maria João Pires’ concerto recordings for Deutsche Grammophon from between 1990 and 2011. It displays the great Portuguese pianist in the music of three composers who have always been close to her heart – Mozart, Schumann and Chopin – and whose intimacy of scale is ideally suited to her distinctive musicianship.
