About

Regarded as an artist of expressive refinement, luminous pulsation and great personality, Judith Jáuregui has become one of today’s most captivating Spanish pianists. British magazine International Piano has recently described her as ‘creative intuition’‘an imaginative artist, a strikingly individual performer who has impressed European audiences with her maturity of expression’. Likewise, 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’.

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, Teatro Mayor in Bogotá, 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 amongst others with the Britten Sinfonia, Neubrandenburger Philharmonie, the PFK Prague Philharmonia, Das Neue Orchester Köln, the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak Sinfonietta, the Hradec Králové Philharmonic and the Simón Bolívar Orchestra of Venezuela, besides the principal Spanish orchestras such as the Spanish National Orchestra, the Basque National Orchestra, the Spanish Radio & Television 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. 

Highlights for 21/22 season include collaborations alongside the Biel Solothurn Symphony Orchestra with Kaspar Zehnder, the Castille and Leon Symphony with Gabriel Bebeselea, the ADDA Symphony with Darrell Ang, the Balearic Islands Symphony with Lina González Granados and the Murcia Symphony with Ramón Tebar amongst others. She will also join the Azahar Ensemble at the Palau de la Música in Barcelona, and will offer recitals at the Palermo Classica Festival and in some of the principal piano series in Spain such as those in Tenerife's Auditorium, Santiago de Compostela's Auditorium and Alicante's Concert Society.

Read here a summary of the reviews of this and other concerts at the Auditorio de Galicia in Santiago de Compostela, the Palau de la Música in Barcelona and with the Murcia Symphony Orchestra. 

Grieg with the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands

Having begun 2022 playing at the historic Philarmonic Society in Malaga, Judith has enjoyed a fantastic week with the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands and Colombian-US conductor Lina González-Granados interpreting Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor Op.16, as highlighted by the strong reviews received which have underscored a ‘rock-solid technique, rhythmic verve and a delicate touch’, as well as ‘the warmth, passion, vitality and beauty… the elegance of Jáuregui’s hands'.
