About the Artist:

Terry's New York début at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall in 2004 received critical acclaim, leading to performances at other prominent halls in the U.S., France, Germany, Italy and, next fall in Singapore and China. She began musical studies at the age of four in Detroit. By age 16 she performed at the Detroit Art Institute as the recipient of the Louise Smith Petersen Memorial Fund award. She studied at Oberlin Conservatory primarily with Peter Takács, and at Indiana University with Bálint Vázsonyi, earning a Master of Music with Distinction. Terry Eder won a research grant from the International Research and Exchanges Board for a year-long residency at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. Ms. Eder chose to study in Hungary because she feels an affinity for music from this part of the world, being of Eastern European ancestry. Ms. Eder's research centered on twentieth century Hungarian piano music, working under the tutelage of Zoltán Kocsis. She also learned to speak Hungarian. Today she is recognized as an exceptional interpreter of the music of Bartók and other Hungarian composers. She has been invited to lecture about Bartók at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., the New School University in New York City and the Yong Siew Conservatory of Music in Singapore. Her Bartók performances at the 2008 IBLA and Bartók/Kabalevsky competitions won her top distinction. 

Ms. Eder holds a Juris Doctorate and has lent her legal expertise to supporting human rights groups and musical organizations. She is currently engaged in instituting a new concert series in New York entitled Key Pianists. Also active as a recording artist, Eder’s previous issues include Portrait, and a program of piano music by Dohnányi. A Bartók CD will be released this spring on MSR Classics.  See her website for press, photos and more information:
