"The full range of feelings"
Judith Jáuregui has just finished taking part for the first time as Artist in Residence at the Festival Murten Classics, and the balance is very positive. Over the course of the festival, Judith has had the chance to perform with the City of Prague Philarmonic and Maestro Kaspar Zehnder, when she played one of Schumann's piano concertos. As well as this, chamber music has had a special place with concerts alongside the Terpsychordes Quartet and the soprano Clara Miloni, performing the unusual Turina song cycle, Las Musas de Andalucía, and a recital with Kaspar Zehnder, this time in his role as a flautist, with a Franco-Spanish repertoire.
Likewise, the pianist unfurled her most multifaceted side when she presented Chopin'Chopin, her fusion project with Latin jazz, accompanied by the Cuban pianist Pepe Rivero. Finally, Judith brought the festival to a close with a solo piano recital.
So Murten Classics has been an unbeatable Swiss debut, with a very positive reception in which the critics single out above all Judith's musicality, sound and personality. The newspaper Freiburger Nachrichten draws attention to the fact that her "virtuosity is always placed at the service of the oeuvre, creating intensities through the sound, giving space to each note and thus reaching the greatest level of emotion". In turn, Berner Zeitung talks about "the beauty of [her] sound, rhythmic freedom and profound knowledge of the musical structure". And La Liberté headlines the performer's residency as "The full range of feelings".
