What I like the most in Argerich interpretation is not just her superior technique, but the way she “builds” the sonata. I mean: the form of a piece should be developed by the artist, brought into reality. To do it properly, repetitions must not be exact, nor dynamics and other musical parameters and the pianist must comprehend the sense and time of the music. I feel she tells the musical story until the end with remarkable perfection and understanding.

Well I have played it - inspired by Petrov.

When I heard Argerich on the tube - I was shocked at first. To me it appeared as a pure demonstration of how fast she could move her fingers....It is not an etude but a sonata! I really did not grasp the form - should perhaps listen once more.

Of course the sound quality of Petrov's version is better although the recording is on a vinyl LP from the SSSR, to the disadvantage of Argerich, whom I have heard only on my computer.

Sorry to be a nit-picker, but the Scarlatti sonatas ARE etudes - Scarlatti gave them the overall label of "exercises", right? And they aren't really sonata sonatas, i.e., they are not written in sonata form. None of which really matters when deciding whether one does or doesn't like Argerich's interpretation...

Jan-that IS what Scarlatti called them.
Sonata form did not exist when Scarlatti was writing these.

Personally I find Argerich's interpretation to be very VERY musical. There's alot more in that performance than stupendously fast repeated notes!
Listen to it carefully...

Exactly. It's that kind of music making which continually brings me back to Argerich's interpretations. Some critics tut-tut that Argerich becomes consumed by her own virtuosity in the Liszt B minor, but I've never heard a performance which is such an organic whole... it just makes one impatient with Arrau.

(IMHO, of course.)
