Martha Argerich playing Polonaise Op. 53 on YouTube

Is she always so sloppy? Not that she was extremely sloppy, but it seems very sloppy for someone who is considered to be one of the greatest pianists of our time.

And is she talking to herself, or what?

That's an old tape. But first things first: Those shoes - yuck! I hope she's got better fashion sense now.

Second: Yeah, she made a couple slips, but I don't mind that when I see/hear the pros play and they make mistakes. It makes me feel much better. :wink: And at least she's not singing along. I hate that.
Overall, I think her technique was great. Did you hear how fast her left hand octaves were? Too bad you can't see her hands at that spot. I'm glad you posted this link. I don't have time to search You tube for anything, but I like when people direct me to something interesting.

Like I said, it's not that it was actually bad - just a few more slips than I would expect from such a pro. My recording of that Polonaise is Ashkenazy (granted, studio), and he plays the octaves just as fast.

And how do you know she's not singing along? Actually, I was trying to figure out if she was counting...

And I totally agree about the shoes. Yuk! :D

My friend Zac, he can play some crazy stuff.
He's 14 years old.
A year older than me.

I kinda look up to him.
He gives me a bunch of sheet music.
Which is how I got into Cohpin stuff.

But the day I surpass him will be a great day to be alive.
