Martha Argerich has a real affinity towards Prokofiev Piano Concerto no.3. She learned the piece -literally- in her sleep while her roommate practiced it. By her own admission, she even picked up all the mistakes that her roommate made. The only time she worked on the piece is actually to remove those mistakes.
Andre Previn introduces Martha on their performance together on 1977 as follows: “It is probably the most popular of the Post-Romantic piano concertos. And this for very good reasons: it is very dynamic, it is very Russian, and it is terribly difficult. Obviously, the word “difficult” has never been explained to the soloist playing tonight.”
