About

Regarded as a luminous, elegant and personal artist, Judith Jáuregui has become one of today’s most captivating young pianists. Her approach is distinctive, creative and illuminating. Embracing three centuries of repertoire, over the current and coming seasons she will place a special focus on the Viennese Classics, on the musical relationship between Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms, on works by female composers, and on the oeuvre of Debussy and composers related to him like Liszt, Chopin and Falla. In the words of the Spanish magazine Scherzo, her career to date has been characterized by “an extraordinary natural energy” and she is an artist whose “temperament, freshness and musical dedication open the way to a fabulous future.”

Born in San Sebastián in northern Spain, Judith has been linked with a multicultural environment through her Basque mother and her Mexican father who grew up in France. After initial studies in San Sebastián and a debut recital at the age of just 11, she moved to Munich to study with the distinguished Russian pianist Vadim Suchanov at the Richard-Strauss Konservatorium.

In recent years she has been enthusiastically received on leading stages both in Europe and Asia. Highlights of her 2018/2019 season include concerts in Bilbao, Madrid and Seville, recitals in Berlin and Vienna and festival dates in Gstaad, Klosters, Porto and Toulon. For the coming 19/20 she has scheduled dates in Germany, Spain, Japan and USA.

Judith is a Bösendorfer Artist.

Excellent first reviews of ‘Pour le tombeau de Claude Debussy’

Judith Jáuregui’s new album “Pour le tombeau de Claude Debussy” has received strong critical acclaim in different European cultural and musical publications, both in terms of the choice of repertoire – which is in memory to the French maestro and includes works by himself as well as others by composers who are artistically close to his figure, such as Liszt, Chopin, Falla and Mompou – and well as regarding Jauregui’s interpretation, defined as “being one of pianistic sovereignty”, “poetry that shines with its own light”, “surprising for its extrovert nature and freshness” or “a true Musical lesson”.

Shostakovich and Weinberg in Seville and Madrid with the Signum Quartett

On April 3rd and 4th Judith and the Signum Quartett will play together again at the Teatro Central of Seville and the National Auditorium of Madrid respectively. The programme revolves around two great friends who had different twists of fate in their lives: the reputed Shostakovich achieved success and high degrees of popularity whilst his friend Weinberg, unfairly, did not enjoy such recognition with the consequence that his music is therefore not played as often. Jáuregui and the Signum will play his Quintet, a magnificent work that perfectly describes the expressive intensity of its composer.
