"Teresa Walters Tours Brazil"
"Great classical interpreters with renowned qualifications are rare. All the more fortunate for the public of Ribeirão Preto to be offered the unique opportunity to appreciate the works of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff as interpreted by Teresa Walters, one of the world's great international pianists. The North American pianist performed at the Theatre Pedro II, presenting Rachmaninoff's Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18 and Tchaikovsky's Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor, Op. 23. In this style of repertoire, Rachmaninoff and Tchakiovsky stand as musical icons. The artist explained that Rachmaninoff's famous concerto was composed during a time of personal and professional rehabilitation in the composer's life. Background to this music presents an optimal opportunity to better understand two of the world's most complex composers.
