‘Enjoying Pires’ talent is a real treat, and even more so now that she only performs when and where she feels like it’. El País.
‘If anyone knows how to make the piano murmur in any hall, no matter how big it is, that is Maria João Pires’. La Vanguardia.
“Maria João Pires’ contribution to music, art and the world’s cultural heritage is priceless. The whole world is indebted to her”.
Josep Lluís Martí, doctor en Ciencias Políticas y Sociales, profesor Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
One of the most acclaimed and awarded pianists of our time, Maria João Pires, will be the star of this Primavera Patagonia Festival at Teatro del Lago, performing the most outstanding works of her vast repertoire. Throughout her prolific career, Pires has performed most of the works of the Western canonical repertoire, from J. S. Bach, W.A. Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, to Schumann, Chopin and Brahms. She has been recognised as one of the greatest interpreters of all times in the classical piano repertoire, working with distinguished conductors such as Claudio Abbado and Daniel Harding, among others, playing and recording with the best orchestras in the world.
Maria João Pires
Maria João Pires made her first public performance at the age of seven with Mozart’s Piano Concertos in Porto. At the age of nine, she received the most important award for young musicians in Portugal and began her music and piano studies with Campos Coelho and Francine Benoît, later continuing them in Germany with Rosl Schmid and Karl Engel.
She has performed all over the world with leading orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the London Philharmonic, the Orchestre de Paris and the Vienna Philharmonic, among others. For over 20 years, she has been an artist with Deutsche Grammophon, the label for which she records exclusively.
Since the 1970s, Pires has dedicated herself to searching for and reflecting on the influence of art on life, community and education, seeking to discover new ways for societal thinking. In 1999 she created the Belgais Centre in Portugal, dedicated to the study of the arts and the development of interdisciplinary workshops for professional musicians and music lovers. In 2012, she initiated two complementary projects in Belgium: Coros Partitura — for children in vulnerable environments — and Talleres Partitura, with the aim of creating altruistic dynamics between artists of different generations, offering alternatives to a world focused on competitiveness.
