Happiness: Pires is back on stage

The Portuguese pianist, 78, called off a London recital with an injury last week.

Happily Maria Joao Pires is fullt recovered. Last night she gave a recital for Scherzo magazine in Madrid – two Schubert sonatas and a Debussy suite.

Antonio Moral writes: BIG PIRES!

When an interpreter makes you feel that the music sounds natural, with an infinite colour palette and a crystal clear phrase (without any condiment); behind that fabulous musical performance is the Portuguese genius Maria João Pires.
