Santiago del Estero is the city where Marta was born and spent the early years of her life. This is where, at age 4, her parents first discovered what seemed to be a natural talent for piano and a strong uncanny ability with music. After hearing a song on the radio she could immediately reproduce the melody unerringly on a small toy piano. Amazed, her parents began to search for a real piano and an instructor for their prodigy.
After a year at the Provincial Conservatory of Music, Marta performed her first recital for the public. This performance at such an early age was so impressive her mother started to receive offers for Marta to do other concerts, appearances and even television programs.
The next several years were spent studying under Franklin Ponce, a famous pianist and instructor who had studied in Europe. He made her ready for her first full symphony concert, Beethoven’s first Concerto for Piano with the Tucuman Symphony Orchestra…at this time she was only 14 years old.
The next several years provided time for little else but study. She received her degree from the prestigious Tucuman Conservatory of Music as Professora de Piano and by the time she turned 21, had moved to Buenos Aires and become the star of The National Symphony of Argentina there.
During her life she has traveled extensively and performed with many of the largest most respected symphonies in the most prestigious concert venues throughout Latin America.
More recently Marta has been residing in the United States. In the last 18 months she has performed extensively mostly along the west coast of the United States and in Europe.
Marta is an international artist with an exceptional command of her instrument. She brings to each performance a vast amount of knowledge and experience! You will find in this recording passion and power…these are great arrangements of Tango for piano performed by a true Master…she is perhaps the best Tango pianist alive today!
