A day with Martha Argerich II: Verbier Festival Essentials Verbier Festival 2003-2011

About

Generously supported by Madame Aline Foriel-Destezet

A living legend, a force of nature, and a pianist of seemingly unlimited capabilities, Martha Argerich is one of the biggest names in classical music and one of the artists most intimately associated with the Verbier Festival. From her early years as a child prodigy to her victory at the International Chopin Competition in 1965, her rare and invariably sold-out recitals to her unassailable recordings, she has proven time and again her place in the pantheon of all-time piano greats. In works from any time period by any composer and in any style, there is no obstacle that her almost supernatural technique and innate sensibility cannot master.
