About

Regarded as an artist of expressive refinement, luminous pulsation and great personality, Judith Jáuregui has become one of today’s most captivating young 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 also collaborated, amongst others, with the Britten Sinfonia, Neubrandenburger Philharmonie, the PFK Prague Philharmonia, the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak Sinfonietta and the Simón Bolívar Orchestra of Venezuela, as well as 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 Summer 2020 and next season 20/21 include collaborations with the Orchestre de chambre de Fribourg, the Orquesta Radio Televisión Española and the ADDA Simfònica, her return to Spanish main stages like the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, the Auditorio in Zaragoza or the Teatro Victoria Eugenia in San Sebastian, her debut at the Teatro Mayor in Bogotá and the release of her new album ‘Die romantische Seele’, recorded together with the Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae. The first release-recitals will be held in Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna.

New album: Die romantische Seele

Judith Jáuregui presents her latest album Die romantische Seele (The Romantic Soul), with music by Clara and Robert Schumann, released by ARS Produktion. The Schumanns had to fight hard for their love. Yet despite the resistance and hurdles that initially stood in their way, their marriage became a source of mutual artistic admiration and inspiration that illuminated some of the most important works in the history of music. In Die romantische Seele Judith has included four works that reflect this deep union: Schumann's Piano Concerto acts as the anchor point of the album, that is completed with three works for solo piano that testifies to the intense flame of its authors. With them the artist returns to the purest romanticism and to one of the composers who have most marked her in her career to date.

Judith Jáuregui & Britten Sinfonia

Judith’s last concert just days before the Covid-19 crisis was alongside the Britten Sinfonia, playing Chopin’s Piano Concerto no. 1. The English ensemble and the soloist enjoyed a celebrated performance that was full of complicity, as reflected in the review in El Correo the following day: ‘…within that intimate chamber music ambiance, Judith Jáuregui burst in with powerful, intense chords, which soon gave way to the delicacy and elegance that are her own, to her warm, very focused phrasing, which always goes straight ahead, without avoiding difficulties. These abound in the piece by way of all kinds of scales and arpeggios, alternating with soft, dreamy dynamics, in which Jáuregui showed crystalline qualities, temperance in tone and the melancholy of a first maturity’.
