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 has never enjoyed performing on stage. She believes the form concerts take should change to be more informal and relaxed. The time when she learned the wrong Mozart piano concerto, but went on to play the right one from memory, is one of classical music's most amazing moments.
