Statement from the Riga Jurmala Festival:
After yesterday’s last minute cancellation, we are pleased to report that pianist Maria João Pires is doing well. After a period of a few weeks of rest, she will be able to resume her majestic performances. She accidentally fell and as a precautionary measure was taken to the hospital emergency room. Outpatient examinations revealed that one of her shoulders sustained some damage but fortunately it will heal with the prescribed rest. We wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to finding a date for her to return to the Festival next summer.
