Thanks for joining us for today’s show. All week, we’ve been enjoying performances from child prodigies who made big debuts at a young age. Today, we learn about Argentinian pianist, Martha Argerich. She began playing piano at age 5 and was performing incredibly sophisticated pieces of music only three years later, at the age of 8. The musical selection of the day is Sergei Prokofiev’s Toccata, Opus 11, recorded when Martha Argerich was 16 years old.
