Maria João Pires


‘Piano poetess’ Maria João Pires is widely regarded as the world’s foremost interpreter of Mozart and Beethoven. Her performances are sophisticated and spiritual. She is often referred to as a musical medium. She herself explains it best: “Music is not just a human creation. There is more to it. A composer has forces within him that we cannot explain. But he also has them from somewhere, somewhere from all over the world, from the universe. As an artist, I am simply a channel to transmit the music.”
