Schumann and Beethoven in Alicante
On Thursday 22nd March Judith Jáuregui returns to the Auditorium of the Diputación de Alicante (Alicante, Spain), on this occasion together with the Symphonic Orchestra of the Region of Murcia led by its lead conductor Virginia Martínez. The programme includes the Concert in A minor op. 54 by Robert Schumann, a composer to whom the pianist feels especially attached to and who, in her own words, expresses "the essence of German romanticism, in which the exaltation of feelings, temperament and vitality are paramount".
The pianist will offer the public of ADDA a concert which she enjoys immensely. "Schumann is a composer to whom I feel especially connected to” she underlines, “And proof of this was the first album I recorded (Robert Schumann, el arte de lo pequeño). I am entrapped by his romanticism of both extremes, a reflection of his bipolarity: his more lyrical, ethereal, reflexive and dreamer personality in Eusebius, and his more impetuous and impassioned one in Florestan".
In this way Judith Jáuregui reunites with Symphonic Orchestra of the Region of Murcia, an orchestra with which she maintains a fruitful relationship as evidenced by her previous collaborations with it, having played Mozart’s Concerto no.20 conducted by Kaspar Zehnder in 2015 and then playing Ravel’s Concerto in B also conducted by Virginia Martínez.
The second part of the concert will be devoted to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 in E major, op. 55, his “Eroica” symphony.
Judith Jáuregui’s concert at ADDA is part of an intense season for the pianist in which upcoming engagements include, amongst others, concerts in Madrid, San Sebastian, Paris, London and a those in a series of major cities in China, a country to which she will be returning to for an extensive recital tour this summer.
