Bookmark and Share

Argentine pianist Martha Argerich is one of the five artists honored at the 39th annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. The 75-year-old musician is referred to by many as the greatest pianist in the world. Her photographic memory – she's able "to reproduce music perfectly after a single hearing" – is only part of what constitutes her legendary status. Argerich has lived a whirlwind life, with all the dips and crescendos of a symphony. She is the mother of three daughters with three different men, all accomplished in the music world. They are:

1. Taiwanese-born composer/conductor Robert Chen, father of violinist Lyda Chen-Argerich (they broke up before her birth in 1964)

2. Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit, father of Annie Dutoit

3. American pianist Stephen Kovacevich, father of Stéphanie Argerich Blagojevic who directed a documentary about her mother, Bloody Daughter.
