Event Slider

After a prolonged absence from Portuguese stages, and having abandoned touring and the frenzy of the circuit of major world halls, Maria João Pires makes an exception and returns to Gulbenkian Music along with Armenian soprano Talar Dekrmanjian. It is the first of three recitals that Maria João Pires will star in throughout the season, giving us back the interpretative brilliance of the celebrated Portuguese pianist.
