Martha Argerich is "Unquestionably one of the greatest pianists of all time." — (Gramophone magazine)
First release on LP of an acclaimed recording of Chopin popular piano concertos. Remastered.
Martha Argerich, born in 1941, is widely regarded as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. She was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Argerich rose to international prominence when she won the seventh International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1965, at age 24. In that same year, she debuted in the United States in Lincoln Center's Great Performers Series. In 1960 she made her first commercial recording, which included works by Chopin, Brahms, Ravel, Prokofiev, and Liszt; it received critical acclaim upon its release.
