Martha Argerich's concerts are always planned, but they are never guaranteed.

Concerts August 2015

Following her highly-anticipated return to Argentina in July, Martha Argerich will perform two concerts in Japan. Here's hoping she'll get some well-deserved summer break afterwards!

Concerts July 2015

In July, Martha Argerich will give four concerts in Europe before leaving for Argentina for performances with Daniel Barenboim. And as is the norm now, Argerich will be partnered by longtime friends Mischa Maisky, Myung Whun Chung and Lilya Zilberstein.

Progetto Martha Argerich 2015

The fifteenth edition of Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano pays homage to two legendary pianists, Robert Schumann - a big love of Argerich - and Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli - one of Argerich's mentors. A few of Schumann's rarer works for piano will be featured during the festival, and other highlights include a performance of Debussy's 'En blanc et noir' with one of Argerich's favourite artists, Stephen Kovacevich.
