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 Jáuregui 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.
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.
In recent years she has been enthusiastically received on leading stages both in Europe and Asia, including the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, the Palau de la Música in Barcelona and Valencia, the Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao, the Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville or the Auditorio de Zaragoza in Spain, the Louvre Auditorium in Paris, the Festival du Piano de La Roque d’Anthéron, the Festival du Piano in Lille, the Montpellier Radio France Festival in France, as well as the Southbank Centre in London and the Murten Classics Festival in Switzerland where she was Artist in Residence. She closed a tour of several cities in Japan with the Spanish National Orchestra at Suntory Hall in Tokyo and her tours of China have taken her with great success to halls like the Grand Theatre of Tianjin, the Opera House in Guanzhou, the Concert Hall of Harbin, the Telunsu Concert Hall in Chengdu and the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing.
She has collaborated with the Basque Symphony Orchestra, Castile and Leon Symphony Orchestra, Bilbao Symphony, Murcia Symphony, Community of Madrid Orchestra, Oviedo Filarmonia, the PFK Prague Philharmonia, Das Neue Orchester Köln, Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, Slovak Sinfonietta and Simón Bolívar Orchestra of Venezuela, having the opportunity to work with conductors like Andrey Boreyko, Marc Soustrot, Antonio Méndez, Jaime Martín, Víctor Pablo Pérez, Kaspar Zehnder, Virginia Martínez, Christoph Spering, Erik Nielsen, Günter Neuhold or Diego Matheuz.
Involved in chamber music, Jáuregui currently has different projects with the German Signum Quartet, the Spanish Gerhard Quartet and the Franco-Swiss cellist Nadège Rochat. Additionally, her belief that music moves beyond any border has prompted her to share a classical and latin jazz fusion project with the Cuban pianist Pepe Rivero.
In 2012 her debut CD Robert Schumann - El arte de lo pequeño was released by Columna Música. One year later Judith Jáuregui established her own record label BerliMusic (‘Berli’ is an anagram of the Spanish word ‘libre’, meaning ‘free’). She has released the albums Para Alicia, inspiración española (an homage to Alicia de Larrocha), Aura and X with works by Albéniz, Debussy, Granados, Mompou, Scriabin and Szymanowski. In 2019 her fifth album Pour le tombeau by Claude Debussy establishes the beginning of a new cooperation with the label ARS Produktion. The CD was recorded live in autumn 2018 in Vienna and sets Debussy’s music in the context of pieces by Chopin, Falla, Liszt and Mompou.
