Myriam Avalos

Incomparable Classical Piano


“I thought of this program as a way to honor some of the wonderful teachers I have had in my life, who passed away — some as recent as this year — and who were decisive in my musical development. ”


“I will play one work for each of them:  Mozart, for Frank Glazer; Beethoven, for Teresa Quesada; Chopin, for Luisa Negri; and Debussy, for Harvey Wedeen.  These works are in the standard repertoire,  very different musical periods and styles, very beautiful.”
