Argentinian Pianist Martha Argerich Has Been Feted With Classical Music's Prestigious Gold Medal From Britain's Royal Philharmonic Society.
The 74 year old was selected as the 101st recipient of the honour, following in the footsteps of fellow classical stars, Spanish tenor Placido Domingo and British conductor Antonio Pappano.
Announcing this year's recipient, RPS chairman John Gilhooly says, "Martha Argerich's combination of technical mastery and passionate artistry make her one of the most compelling and expressive pianists, and her extraordinary live performances are a musical and intellectual tour de force. She is a consummate chamber music collaborator."
The award was founded in 1870 in celebration of Beethoven's birth centenary.

Baritone Luca Salsi Had No Time To Prepare On Saturday (04apr15) After He Was Called In To Replace A Sick Placido Domingo Just 30 Minutes Before A Scheduled Performance At New York's Metropolitan Opera.
The Spanish tenor fell ill with a cold on Friday (03Apr15), prompting the Met's general manager, Peter Gelb, to contact Salsi ahead of the weekend concert of Verdi's Ernani as a possible stand in.
Gelb reached out to the Italian singer again on Saturday morning to notify Salsi his services would no longer be needed, but plans changed again shortly before showtime, when Domingo's daughter, Alvaro, called the star in a panic and asked him to rush to the Met to take her father's place as Don Carlo, as he did not feel well enough to take the stage.
Salsi, who was already scheduled to perform in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor at the Met later on that night, agreed and made it to the stage just in time for the event, which was broadcast on radio networks around the world.
The Annie Hall filmmaker will return to direct the show on the opening night of the venue's 2015-16 season on 12 September (15), seven years after the project's premiere.

The Spanish opera star and conductor, who has struggled with numerous health issues in recent years, is refusing to let his advancing age and personal problems hinder his career, and has agreed to extend his contract with the Los Angeles Opera until the end of the 2018-2019 season.
The 73 year old, who is currently preparing to star in the company's production of La Traviata later this month (Sep14), tells the Los Angeles Times, "I still feel strong to do the job.
