Judith Jáuregui

Regarded as a luminous, elegant and extroverted 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 child- hood: 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 Sun- tory 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 Guangzhou, the Concert Hall of Harbin, the Telunsu Concert Hall in Chengdu and the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing.

In keeping with her entrepreneurial spirit, Jáuregui created her own record label Berli- Music, under which she has recorded works by diverse composers and periods: from Debussy, Liszt and Mompou to Albéniz, Granados and Falla or Scriabin, Szymanowski and Chopin. Previously, her first recording produced by Columna Música and devoted to Schumann won the Best Classical Music Album Award at the Spanish Independent Music Prizes.

Judith now joins the catalogue of ARS Produktion with an album that is her first live recording to be published and a repertoire to which she feels a special connection.
