Maria João Pires only performs occasionally, in fact she already formally took her leave from the stage. So it’s an absolutely unique opportunity to hear the Portuguese pianist again in Eindhoven. Every concert of hers is an experience. Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote of her 20-CD Deutsche Gramophon box set: ‘Milestones. As simple as her playing seems, it is full of inner life. Full of fantasy, a sense of ‘singing lines’ and spatial soundscapes: poetic and extraordinarily musical.’ 

Maria João Pires (Lisbon, 1944) gave her first public performance at the age of four. When she was seven, she was playing Mozart piano concertos for audiences. Her international breakthrough came in 1970 when she won the International Beethoven Bicentennial Competition in Brussels. Since then she has performed all over the world. She has regularly collaborated with Claudio Abbado and appears with orchestras such as the Wiener and Berliner Philharmoniker and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. In 1989 she signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon. Her recordings include Beethoven’s piano sonatas, Schubert’s complete impromptus and the complete Nocturnes and other works by Chopin. In 2006 she moved to Brazil.

To keep waiting times at the bar down to an absolute minimum, we use a cashless interval. A drink is included in your ticket, so you'll have more time to enjoy your company and your drink.

Every one of her concerts is an exeprience
