Martha Argerich at New York City's Pier 86 in 1962.

Today is the 72nd birthday of the fiery Argentine pianist Martha Argerich and we’re celebrating with a Showdown that offers three great Argerich interpretations.

It was a super close race all morning between three Russian concerti with Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 in D Minor, Op. 30 just barely squeaking ahead. We played it at noon.
