About the event

Teresa Carreño, arguably the greatest pianist of her generation, was known by many of her followers

as the Valkyrie of the Piano- a testament to her indefatigable energy and sheer physical exuberance. A towering musical genius, she was lauded by Liszt, Rossini, Rubinstein, Brahms, and Grieg. Carreño found time also to become a composer of note, a singer, conductor, and impresario. Yet her fiery temperament- that served her so well at the instrument- did not go over very well in the polite society circles of her time. That, coupled with her stormy relationships, made Carreño an outcast in her own country. 

The conversation provides  pointers about people who influenced her, anecdotes from her life, and relevant views of some contemporaries about her genius.
