Piano legend Martha Argerich, widely regarded to be one of the greatest pianists of all time, performed her debut concert at the age of 8. For the occasion of her 80th birthday this June, EuroArts have released a beautiful 6-disc boxset combining some of her finest performances along with the acclaimed documentary Bloody Daughter directed by Martha’s daughter Stéphanie.
