Acclaimed as one of the greatest interpreters of the Classical and Romantic repertories, Portuguese pianist Maria-João Pires is an artist who combines exquisite stylistic refinement with a serious effort to plumb the intellectual complexities and spiritual depths of music. She has performed with the major European and American orchestras, and has recorded exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon since 1989.

Born in Belgrade in 1985, Miloš Popovič has worked closely with Maria João Pires since 2014 as an integral member of Pires’s Partitura project, an altruistic approach to sharing knowledge between artists of different generations. A successful soloist and chamber musician in his own right, Popovič has performed at festivals such s the Menuhin Gstaad Festival and with orchestras such as the English Chamber Orchestra.

Peterhouse is the oldest of the constituent colleges in the University of Cambridge.  It was founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely, on its current site close to the centre of the City.

The Peterhouse Theatre was built in 1883 to designs by one of the architectural masters of the Victorian era, Basil Champneys (1842-1935), whose other buildings include Newnham College and the Old Divinity School in Cambridge. Inspired by Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico at Vicenza (1580-85), the fine acoustics and intimate atmosphere of the Peterhouse Theatre make it the finest venue for chamber music in Cambridge, and one of the top three such venues in the whole country.
