Martha Argerich: ‘I’m busier now than when I was younger. I need to practice more.’

From an enigmatic interview today in Japan:

“I’m not at all comfortable because I still have too much, too many activities,” she said. “I’m busier now than when I was younger. I don’t know why. I need to practice more.”

She wondered whether her abilities were deteriorating and even asked me if she should retire.

I asked Argerich, who said she hoped to keep coming to Beppu, what her wishes were.

‘That’s a mystery to me. I don’t know what I want to do, and I need some more time for myself. I don’t know how much time I have. I’d like to live very freely and do what I want, if I can.’
