Last concert of 2018 in Málaga
On December 13th Judith will return for the fourth time to the Sala María Cristina in Málaga within the concert season of the city’s Philharmonic Society, an organization with which she has a strong and long-lasting relationship. This will be her final concert of 2018 and will see her play the programme “Pour le tombeau de Claude Debussy” in tribute to the French composer, one of her favourite authors.
Judith says “I am delighted to return to Malaga and to its Philharmonic Society, I have a great relationship with them since way back and I feel very close to their seasons. Moreover I return with a tribute to Debussy, closing the year with a composer who is so dear to me and which has been duly remembered by so many throughout 2018.”
The repertoire chosen for the occasion will begin with the homonymous work by Falla in homage to Debussy’s tomb, followed Ballade No. 2 in B minor by Liszt, a composer in whom -the pianist remarks- “much is foretold of what would happen musically at the beginning of the XX century”. The first part of the concert will then close with two of Debussy’s most characteristic works, Estampes and L’Isle joyeuse. In the second half of the concert, the audience will be treated to the Valses nobles et sentimentales by Ravel “to whom Debussy was close to at different times throughout his life”, and Chopin’s Andante Spianato et Grande Polonaise brillante Op. 22, “one of his great inspirations”.
The Philharmonic Society of Málaga is this year celebrating its 150th anniversary and the concert will be a memorable occasion in which the Jáuregui will celebrate those fifteen decades of musical activity on a stage that has always welcomed her so warmly. The Malaga Philharmonic Society is a leading cultural organization within the Spanish cultural scene, and has had - from its very beginnings - an excellent and historic concert programme series, seeing artists of the importance of Rubinstein, Albéniz and Gayarre play in its halls.
With this final concert in Málaga Judith puts an end to 2018, a year that has seen her develop and make important debuts across major European capitals - the Auditorium du Louvre in Paris and Southbank Centre in London or the Imperial in Concert series in Vienna. It has also seen her return to China, with an extraordinary recital tour across the country and concerts in Beijing, Tianjin, Harbin, Chengdu and Liuzhou, as well leading her to play in some of Spain’s most relevant halls and festivals such as the Príncipe Felipe Auditorium in Oviedo, the ADDA venue of Alicante, the Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao or the Quincena Musical festival in San Sebastian.
