“The Fairmont Opera House is thrilled to present internationally renowned classical pianist Teresa Walters on Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m.  Her mesmerizing performances on today’s international concert stages inspire unanimous praise.  Her program A Celebration of Musical Heritage will include music by Granados, Liszt, George Walker, Gottschalk, Gershwin and Argentine composer Alberto Williams.

The New York Times recently announced:  “Teresa Walters is aptly nicknamed ‘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.” 

Her prestigious invitations to perform in honor of the recent Liszt Bicentennial included Copenhagen’s Hungarian Embassy and Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall.”   Other highlights include brilliant debuts in Manila and Hong Kong, performances with the Romanian Brasov Philharmonic, South American debuts in Sao Paolo, Brazil and many others. 

Her recordings are hailed by FANFARE magazine as “a formidable display of technical dexterity and red-blooded power.”  The Budapest Sun wrote:  “Her fingers give off sparks and she takes the keyboard into orbit.”
