Argerich Plays Liszt

Martha Argerich's talent has been one of the wonders of the world for several decades now. Over the years she has moved away from virtuoso showpieces toward collaboration with some of the greatest musicians of her time. But in this 1966 video we see the very young Argerich showing off in Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6. It is not the greatest music ever written but it requires a pianist with a fabulous technique to even attempt to play it. The final pages have to be seen and heard to be believed.
