Considered to be the Portuguese pianist with the largest international reach and a Mozart specialist, Maria João Pires recorded the Piano Concertos by the Austrian composer with the Gulbenkian Orchestra during the 1970s and 1980s, for the prestigious Erato label. Almost 40 years later, she returns to the Grand Auditorium to interpret the famous Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20, under the direction of Lorenzo Viotti.
