Judith returns to main stages in Spain and travels to Latin America for her debut in Mexico

Judith will return in the coming weeks to some of the main stages in Spain of where she has played regularly in recent years, including the Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid, the ADDA in Alicante, the Euskalduna Palace of Bilbao or the Auditorio de Zaragoza. Jáuregui will also travel to Latin America to make her debut in Mexico. Following her recent presence on stages in France, Belgium, Turkey or the Czech Republic, the pianist now returns to the Spanish scene with a variety of different projects and repertoires.

Her first stop will be on February 2 in Alicante (Auditorio ADDA) with the ADDA Simfònica orchestra and maestro Josep Vincent, performing ‘Nights in the Gardens of Spain’ by Manuel de Falla. “Vincent and the orchestra have created a great creative and artistic project in Alicante that, moreover, is achieving an extraordinary visibility. I am really looking forward to joining them with this fantastic piece of Spanish music” remarks Judith Jáuregui about this concert.

Her next engagement will see her join forces with Korean violinist Soyoung Yoon and Swiss cellist Nadège Rochat, to play for audiences with which Jáuregui has a strong bond, at the Auditorio de Zaragoza (February 12) and the Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid (February 12). They will meet again a few weeks later at the Teatro Jovellanos in Gijón (March 8) “We are looking forward to playing together for the first time, and such an emotional repertoire. We will begin with the passion of Arensky’s Piano Trio no.1, to then continue with the freshness and light of Debussy’s Piano Trio in G major and will end with one of the fundamental trios for chamber music, the Piano Trio No. 1 in B major by Brahms. Three pieces that invite the listener to travel to the latter days of XIXth century, that nostalgic epoch in which Romanticism was extended to its final consequences” Jáuregui says.

For her next solo concerts Judith will travel to Vigo, for a recital at the city’s Philharmonic Society (February 6) and to Bilbao, the first weekend of March, to the Musika-Musica Festival, with which she has a very close relationship, having now played in over ten editions of the festival. There she will play a programme inspired by the rapport between music and poetry with works by Schumann, Lizst, Chopin and Schubert. Judith will be back in Madrid (Círculo de Bellas Artes) on March 26 with a project devoted to the figure of Shostakovich, performing with Alexander Teliga and the Soloists of the Coro del Teatro Real. “This programme is a major challenge for me, my first true approximation to the complex universe of the composer” Jáuregui comments.

In the midst of these engagements Judith Jáuregui will travel to Latin America to make her debut in Mexico, where she will play three times. She will first offer a recital in Mexico D.F. on February 23 within the Festival Internacional de Piano de Mexico, with works by Brahms, Chopin, Debussy and Mompou. Subsequently she will play two concerts on February 25 and 26 with the Orquesta Filarmónica de la UNAM (OFUNAM) and conductor Enrique Diemecke, performing Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G. “My debut there is particularly emotional for me because Mexico was the country that received my grandparents when they had to go into exile and my father was born there too,” Jáuregui has reflected about this milestone.
