The World's Greatest Music
Pianist Maria João Pires is not a fan of giving concerts and recitals, and does not wear the usual performer's evening dress. But her Chopin is unbeatable.
Pires's grandfather was a Buddhist and her father lived in China and Japan. The pianist has studied Buddhism which - she has said - has in some ways influenced her playing, "the breathing, the space and the quietness of the space."
