Martha Argerich International Piano Competition winner.

Sergio Monteiro, 29, a student of MTNA member Nelita True at the Eastman School of Music, is the first-prize winner of the Martha Argerich International Piano Competition.

A native of Brazil, Monteiro received $10,000 and shared the concert stage with Argerich herself. In addition, he will play five public concerto and chamber music concerts throughout Argentina, as well as recital performances in Japan, as part of the 2004 Martha Argerich Festival.

Monteiro competed with twenty-nine other candidates after an initial videotaped pre-selection process.

Born in Argentina, Argerich is a well-known pianist who has collaborated for more than forty years with Conductor Charles Dutoit, former music director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, in live performances and on recordings.
