Meet the Great Pianists: Martha Argerich

The legendary Argentine pianist Martha Argerich recently celebrated her 75th birthday.  A phenomenal natural talent, she won two major international competitions at age 16, then returned at age 24 in 1965 as the gold-medal winner of the Chopin International Competition in Warsaw.  Since then, she has never been off the international stage, thrilling audiences with her bravura technique and intuitive musicality as a solo and chamber musician.  Enjoy the young Martha Argerich giving a limpid performance of Ravel’s “Jeux d’Eau” or “Fountains”.
