Martha Argerich (born June 5, 1941) is a concert pianist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her aversion to the press and publicity has resulted in her remaining out of the limelight for most of her career. She has given relatively few interviews. As a result, she may not be as well known as other pianists of similar caliber. Despite this, she is widely recognized as one of the greatest piano virtuosos of our time.

  • In Argerich's case, especially her solo performances - she does more than what the composer intended, it has her own stamp of individuality. I think her being tagged as the 'artist' is perfectly valid - ID3 tags especially allow for 'composer' and 'performer' as distinctions - I'm sure it isn't too difficult for last.fm to allow for simultaneous scrobbling to two different profiles based on that? And in case the fields are blank, it scrobbles the artist field by default.
