Belle: I think they were, back when he was known as Bishop-Kovacevich. What a wonderful concert!

Martha named her daughter with her own surname and I remember her in a film saying they weren't married. I've always loved SK since he came to Sydney for the ABC in 1972 and this handsome virtuoso took my friend Janice out 'for coffee'. We used to sit in the airlock in the basement next to the music library and listen to him practice for concerts with the SSO on our lunch breaks at the ABC. My friend - a gorgeous female - persuaded the ex-Viennese music librarian to let us listen to, as then, Stephen Bishop going through his paces.

I saw him in concert late 2010 in Sydney with "Diabelli Variations" and I was moved to tears.

What might also seem a little odd is that Argerich was briefly married to the American pianist, from San Pedro and known then as Stephen Bishop, in the 1970s. They have a daughter, Stephanie Argerich, who made an unflinchingly personal film about her mother called “Bloody Daughter.”
This quote from the article says that they were married briefly...... :)

The daughter is Stephanie Argerich; they were in a de facto relationship and not actually married. Today anybody who lives with another seems to be deemed to be married, which is odd when you consider...... :)
