Just in from the Singapore Symphony:

Due to health-related reasons, Martha Argerich has regretfully postponed her concerts in Singapore, to future dates to be confirmed. All ticketholders will be fully refunded.

She had been due to give three concerts. Eric Lu steps in for one of them.



  • Steven says:

    I bought the concert ticket and plane ticket to Singapore from Taipei just for my lifetime dream—listening to Martha’s concert, and it has been cancelled. I hope Martha can soon get well for her health condition, and I’m looking forward to next time Martha comes to Asia.

  • Arron says:

    I booked non refundable tickets. I had a whole weekend planned. I ultimately hope Martha is OK, but can’t hold back the sadness.

    I will wait to see her next time. I feel sorry for the fill in Pianist, he has some might big shoes to fill – or some mighty notes to make.

    She’s becoming the Montserrat Caballé of the piano. Frequently cancels, but when she doesn’t, it’s always memorable.
