Chopin

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

One of the early successes Martha Argerich enjoyed was a 1965 concert in Munich that was a huge hit. It became known as "the 1965 concert" when the recording of the performance was released. From that recording, we hear Argerich play the closing movement of the Piano Sonata in B minor, Op. 58, by Chopin.
