Acclaimed concert pianist Teresa Walters, hailed as “one of the world’s most significant pianists,” will appear at the Martin Theater on Thursday, Feb. 20th in a concert in honor of the late Jerry Gerde, a long time supporter of the Panama City Music Association, sponsors of the concert.

Ms. Walters will present a program called “Moonlight and Romance:  Cameos of Great Performances and Well-loved Melodies.”  Her performance will include pieces by Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt and conclude with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. 

Performances by Ms. Walters on today’s international concert stages have inspired unanimous praise.  Hailed as “The International First Lady of Piano,” she is described by Austrian National Television as “that rare musical phenomenon” and “one of the world’s most significant pianists.” 

In recent years, she 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.

She is regarded 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.”
