Argerich plays Lizst

From 1966:  the great Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich plays Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6 by Franz Liszt (Hungarian 1811-1886).  It is sometimes argued that Liszt was the greatest pianist to ever live.  He was most certainly a great and charismatic showman and his piano music, no doubt, reflects his attributes as a virtuoso.
