We don't hear her very often these days, her performances have become relatively rare. The Penguin Guide wrote about her complete set of Mozart's piano sonatas (she plays one of them now too): 'Maria Joao Pires is a stylist and an outstanding Mozartian. She is always refined, never lacking in classical feeling and she possesses a lively imagination. She strikes an ideal balance between poise and expressive sensitivity, communicating a sense of spontaneity in everything she does.'

Ignasi Cambra is one of Spain’s most prominent and active pianists. Hailed by conductor Valery Gergiev as “someone who can talk to me at the piano”, he has appeared at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Ravinia Festival and the Mariinsky Theatre. A close collaborator of pianist Maria Joao Pires, he has performed with the 
Barcelona, Miami, Vancouver and Mariinsky symphony orchestras, under conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Tsung Yeh, Eduardo Marturet, Josep Pons and Salvador Brotons.
