Singled out by critics as a brilliant, elegant and personal artist, Judith Jáuregui has become one of the most highly valued figures of the Spanish musical scene. 

Born in San Sebastian in 1985, her talent shone through at a very early age and led to her debut recital when she was only eleven. A familiar figure on the main Spanish stages, including the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, the Barcelona Auditori, Festival of Granada, Peralada, Musika-Música and the San Sebastián Musical Fortnight amongst others, Judith has been invited to leading international festivals and concert halls such as La Roque d’Anthéron International Piano Festival, La Folle Journée de Nantes, the Lille Piano Festival and the Montpellier Festival in France, the Murten Classics Festival in Switzerland where she has been artist in residence in its latest edition, the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing as well as Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, where she gave the final concert of a recent tour of Japan with the Spanish National Orchestra.

Likewise she has collaborated with the Castile and Leon Symphony Orchestra, the Bilbao Symphony, the Murcia Symphony, the Comunidad de Madrid Orchestra, the Oviedo Filarmonia, as well as with prestigious international ensembles including the Prague Philharmonia, Das Neue Orchester of Cologne, the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak Sinfonietta and the Simón Bolívar Orchestra of Venezuela, having the opportunity to work with acclaimed conductors like Andrey Boreyko, Marc Soustrot, Diego Matheuz, Jaime Martín, Victor Pablo Pérez, Christoph Spering and Kaspar Zehnder.

Involved in chamber music, Jáuregui is currently working closely with the Spanish violinist Lina Tur Bonet and the Franco-Swiss cellist Nadège Rochat. Additionally, her belief that music moves beyond any stylistic border has prompted her to share a classical and latin jazz fusion project with the Cuban pianist Pepe Rivero.  

In line with her entrepreneurial character, in 2013 Jáuregui created her own record label BerliMusic. Its latest release, titled “X”, is an immersion in the ecstasy of Scriabin, his inspiration in Chopin and their influence on Szymanowski. Her previous recordings cover a variety of composers and periods, from Debussy, Liszt or Mompou to Albéniz, Granados and Schumann. Her first recording (Robert Schumann, the art of the minute), published by Columna Música, won the Best Classical Music Album Award at the MIN Independent Music Prizes. She has also recorded for media such as Radio Nacional de España, Radio Televisión Española and France Musique of Radio France.

Highlights of the 2017/2018 season include her debuts in London and Paris, at the Southbank Centre and the Auditorium du Louvre respectively, as well as her return to China, where she will be engaging in an extensive recital tour. Furthermore, she will be performing with the Córdoba Orchestra, the Murcia Symphony Orchestra and in the Matinée Series of the Basque National Orchestra. Other dates will take her to the Opera House of Saint Etienne and the Toulon Music Festival in France, Schloss Elmau in Germany, as well as other Spanish venues including the Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville, the Baluarte Auditorium in Pamplona and the the Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao.
