From Perotin to Prokofiev (and beyond), performed by Caruso to Khatia, it's all here.

como se dice "Martha" en castellano?

Marta

"Martha" is a foreign name, originally from Greek (with theta) or Aramaic with hard t. In Argentina her name's origin probably came through German, in which "Marthe" would not have a soft th (theta) sound either.

In Spanish, Martha would be pronounced identically to Marta, which is the more natural native spelling, and she'd be called "Marta" in Spanish and French (which she speaks no doubt as she was married to Dutoit and lives in Belgium).

It's the same name.

Example in English: Jon/John.

The soft "th" would be harder to pronounce for most Europeans.
