Verbier festival 2012: Wallcast – Episode 16
An interview with Martha Argerich
"My first contact with music? It was a game, I think".
Martha Argerich was in Verbier for the 2012 edition of the festival. She notably performed Shchedrin's Romantic offering for piano and cello which she premiered in Lucerne with Mischa Maisky, almost one year ago. medici.tv encountered the pianist who kindly answered our questions.
"Prokofiev is my best friend. He has never let me down."
For the sixth consecutive year, medici.tv spent a few weeks in the station of the Swiss Alps to film and broadcast live on the internet the highlights of the world's famous festival. The perfect occasion to meet the artists and have discussions with them. The particularity of these wallcasts? You were the journalists!
