Composer: Frédéric Chopin, Claude Debussy, Manuel de Falla

Since Argentine pianist Martha Argerich won the International Chopin Competition in 1965, her concerts and recordings alike have been among the milestones of piano music. Her playing couples breathtaking virtuosity with the utmost musicality. To this day, the shy artist, who lives a secluded life, is one of the most fascinating musical figures of our time.
