About

Regarded as an artist of expressive refinement, luminous pulsation and great personality, Judith Jáuregui has become one of today’s most captivating pianists. In the words of the German magazine Piano News, 'it is not only the impeccability of her performance that counts, but rather the impression of listening to a pianist who really has something to say’.

In recent years she has been enthusiastically received on leading stages, including the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, the Palau de la Música in Barcelona, the Southbank Centre in London, Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, Konzerthaus Berlin, Suntory Hall Tokyo, NCPA Beijing, Festival International de Piano de La Roque d’Anthéron, Lille Piano Festival, Festival Radio France in Montpellier, Schloss Elmau, Murten Classics or Klosters Music.

She has collaborated with the Britten Sinfonia, Neubrandenburger Philharmonie, the PFK Prague Philharmonia, Das Neue Orchester Köln, the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak Sinfonietta and the Simón Bolívar Orchestra of Venezuela, besides the principal Spanish orchestras such as the Spanish National Orchestra, the Basque National Orchestra, the Castille and Leon Symphony or the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra.

Born in San Sebastian in northern Spain, Judith Jáuregui has a multicultural background  derived from her Basque mother and her Mexican father, who grew up in France. After initial studies 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. 

Upcoming highlights for the season 20/21 include collaborations with the Orchestre de chambre de Fribourg, the Orquesta Radio Televisión Española, the ADDA Simfònica and the Hradec Králové Philharmonic. She will also visit the Palermo Classica Festival and return to main Spanish stages like the Auditorio in Zaragoza, the Teatro Victoria Eugenia in San Sebastian or the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid.

A summer of emotional reunions

Despite the uncertainty and difficulties of recent times, live music has sounded once again this summer. The longed-for moment of reuniting artists and audiences finally arrived and was unforgettable, with Judith having the good fortune of experiencing this several times over the summer months. The reception on each occasion was very warm and applauded by the critics, who remarked that Jáuregui “played with the maturity of musicians who know how to pause and think, with the poise of careers that look to the long-term and which accumulate, a step at a time, all sorts of memories”, and highlighted her “subtlety, excellent planning and airy games at the keys”, describing her piano as being “of a moving and exultant quality”.

Judith nominated for an Opus Klassik Award

Judith has been nominated for her album Pour le tombeau de Claude Debussy to an Opus Klassik 2020 award, one of the most prestigious prizes given to classical music recordings worldwide. The album has been selected, together with others of recognised soloists and leading orchestras, in the category for live recordings. 

Edited in 2019, Pour le tombeau de Claude Debussy is a tribute to one of the composers who is an absolute reference to the pianist, and in which she portrays the figure of Debussy through his bonds with Falla, Liszt, Chopin and Mompou. It was recorded live in Vienna in October 2018 during her recital in the “Imperial in Concert” series organized by the historic piano manufacturer Bösendorfer.
