The outstanding pianist, who is 81, has cancelled three concerts in Lyon for health reasons.

Here’s the local statement:
Aux lendemains de trois concerts donnés à la Philharmonie de Berlin avec Daniel Barenboim, malgré un état de santé précaire dû à un problème cardiaque, Martha Argerich, souffrante, n’est plus en mesure d’assurer ses prochains engagements et annule récitals et tournées jusqu’à nouvel ordre.Elle est remplacée par son disciple et ami de longue date, le pianiste Sergio Tiempo, également élève de Murray Perahia et de Nelson Freire, que nous sommes heureux d’accueillir à Piano à Lyon et que nous remercions très chaleureusement pour sa participation au pied levé à ces récitals.

Which translates as:
Following three concerts at the Berlin Philharmonic with Daniel Barenboim, (and) despite a precarious state of health due to a heart problem, Martha Argerich, suffering, is unable to fulfil her next commitments and (must) cancel recitals and tours until on further notice. She is replaced by her disciple and long-time friend, the pianist Sergio Tiempo, also a pupil of Murray Perahia and Nelson Freire, whom we are happy to welcome to Piano in Lyon and whom we thank very warmly for his participation at short notice in these recitals.

We wish Martha a rapid recovery.
