Maria João Pires has launched the Partitura project, proposing well-known musicians to foster young musicians, to invite them (as the name suggests) to share the concert platform.

One of these performances took place on 16 September, when Pires played a Beethoven concert with violinist Lorenzo Gatto and cellist Lidy Blijdorp in Auditorio Nacional, Madrid. The program consisted of a cello sonata, a violin sonata and the Ghost trio.
