“Music offers us a glimpse into the truth of a world to which we do not have access”, Maria João Pires once stated. She regularly makes excursions into such zones of the mysterious and the ineffable. In order to grasp the essence of music, one has to forget oneself completely, she remarks. That is the only way to immerse oneself in a language made up solely of sounds, a language that entrances us. The Grand Dame of piano playing has only been making sporadic public appearances in recent years: the greater our joy will be in welcoming her back to the Ruhr Piano Festival. In the meantime her art has acquired an inimitable aura; her magnificent piano playing has gained in refinement, in nuances of colour and timbre.
