Martha Argerich

Artist / Band / Musician
Martha Argerich was born in Buenos Aires and started playing the piano at age three. She gave her debut concert at the age of eight, playing a concerto by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In 1957, at sixteen, she won both the Geneva International Music Competition and the Ferruccio Busoni International Competition within three weeks of each other. Argerich won the seventh International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1965. One of her performances in that winning campaign was a defiantly confident reading of Chopin's Etude in C major (Op. 10, No. 1). The following year she gave her U.S debut in the Lincoln Center's Great Performers Series.Martha Argerich has long been hailed as one of the greatest and most uniquely imaginative pianists. Her commercial recordings span almost 100 CDs and in 2006 Martha received her third Grammy Award. Argerich has also been thankfully generous in allowing radio and television broadcasts of her concerts and many of these non-commercial recordings survive to this day.
