Martha Argerich

Hailing from Argentina, Martha started playing piano at the age of 3, at the age of 5 she began studying under Vincenzo Scaramuzza and had her debut 3 years later with Beethovens piano concert #1. This is Scarlatti's sonata in D-minor Kk. 141 - I love the way youtube is completly unable to follow her hands during most parts of the take.

It seems almost magical. I wonder if the Saudis would kill her as a sorceress (see previous post) if she ever visited them...
