Between these pieces, they will both perform an important work for solo piano. An excellent opportunity for all piano lovers to admire the much-loved piano poet Maria João Pires one more time in a unique concert.

On 4 June at Amare The Hague and on 6 June at deSingel Antwerp, Grigory Sokolov, the absolute ‘grandmaster’ beyond virtuosity, will shine.
