Regarded as a luminous, elegant and personal artist, Judith Jáuregui has become one of today’s most captivating young pianists.
Born in San Sebastian, Spain, she has been linked to different cultures since her childhood: with a Basque mother and a father who is Mexican by birth and French by adoption, Judith took her first musical steps in her hometown and would finish her studies in Munich, Germany, with the Russian maestro Vadim Suchanov.
Her talent shone through at a very early age, leading to her debut recital when she was only eleven. 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.
Likewise she has collaborated with the Basque Symphony Orchestra, Castile and Leon Symphony Orchestra, the Bilbao Symphony, the Murcia Symphony, the Community of Madrid Orchestra, the Oviedo Filarmonia, the PFK Prague Philharmonia, Das Neue Orchester Köln, the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak Sinfonietta and the 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 projects with different ensembles or musicians like the German Signum Quartett, the Spanish woodwind quintet Azahar Ensemble or 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 line with her entrepreneurial spirit in 2013 Jáuregui created her own record label BerliMusic, under which she has recorded works of different composers and periods: from Debussy, Liszt and Mompou to Albéniz, Granados and Falla or Scriabin, Szymanowski and Chopin. Her first recording (Robert Schumann, the art of the minute), published by Columna Música, won the Best Classical Music Album Award at the MIN Independent Music Prizes. She has also recorded for media such as Radio Nacional de España, Radio Televisión Española and France Musique of Radio France.
Highlights of her engagements for the 2018/2019 season include concerts at leading Spanish halls such as at the Liceo de Cámara of the National Auditorium in Madrid or the Luis García Iberni Piano Days at Auditorio Principe in Oviedo, those at the Philharmonic Societies of Málaga, Vigo and Pontevedra as well as her concerts at festivals such as the Musika-Música Festival in Bilbao, Musical Autumn one in Soria, International Music Festival in Úbeda and the Iberian one in Badajoz. Other commitments will take her to the Czech Republic and Switzerland together with the Hradec Králové Philharmonic, to the Festival Présences Féminines of Toulon in France, the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad or the Porto PianoFest in Portugal.
