Great Performances Presents International First Lady of Piano
The Great Performances Series sponsored by Lander Community Concerts presents internationally acclaimed concert pianist Teresa Walters at 7 PM on Wednesday, March 5 at the Lander Valley Auditorium. On March 4, Walters will also do an Artist Residency for area students during which she will perform excerpts from her program and engage in a question and answer session with students.
Teresa Walters has performed as recitalist and orchestral soloist on six continents and in most of the 50 United States at venues including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York, Wigmore Hall in London, the Salle Cortot in Paris, Moscow’s Great hall, Australia’s International Conservatorium and Jerusalem’s Concert Hall. With her vast repertoire, she has also performed at Vienna’s Beethoven Festival and at Spanish Music festivals in Barcelona and Madrid.
Her recent Lincoln Center recital in New York earned a standing ovation from a capacity
crowd. She is the first American pianist invited by Hungary to present the Anniversary Concert in honor of Liszt’s birthday. Prestigious invitations to perform at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music and the Liszt Museum in Budapest as well as at Liszt’s Birthplace in Raiding and at Esterhazy Palace under the patronage of Prince Anton Esterhazy attest to her growing reputati0on as one of the finest interpreters of Liszt performing and recording today. In fact, the American Record Guide has announced: “Her competition is virtually nil.”
