Martha Argerich Essentials
In celebration of Martha Argerich's 80th birthday, enjoy her most iconic recordings with our essentials playlist! Martha Argerich stands as one of the most extraordinary pianists of her generation, known and loved worldwide for her masterful performances and extensive discography. Born in Buenos Aries, she began lessons at age three, after which her prodigious talent was quickly recognized, leading her to make her professional debut aged only eight years old. Her career spans solo, concerto and chamber music, but after expressing feelings of loneliness while being on stage alone, she has dedicated much of her time to collaborative performance, notably with Claudio Abbado, Daniel Barenboim and Mstislav Rostropovich.
