Matthieu Ricard | Reflections on altruism and benevolence

In one of her rare public appearances, revered pianist Maria João Pires presents, together
with philosopher and Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard, a meditation-concert in which Bach’s Preludes and Fugues and guided reflections intertwine to lead from mindful listening to meditation. A unique, intense and intimate musical experience that
nourishes reflection on the themes of altruism and goodwill.
