Personalities | Martha Argerich | Contemporary | Classical

b. 1941
Argentinian pianist

After her success at the 1965 Warsaw International Chopin competition, Argerich’s career involved regular appearances with such conductors as Abbado and Rostropovich (who, as a cellist, also partnered her in duo repertoire). Though her recordings, especially of Chopin, Ravel and Prokofiev, continue to be held in high esteem, she now performs rarely, instead nurturing and collaborating with young artists through festivals, masterclasses and competitions.
