MARIA DE LOS ÁNGELES IGLESIAS: Piano professor at the University of Brasilia, Ángeles Iglesias currently resides in Nicosia, Cyprus.
She started her piano studies at her hometown of Seville; later, she moved to Madrid where she obtained the degree of Bachelor, and to Vienna, at which “Hochschule fuer Musik und Darstellende Kunst” she got her Master´s diploma with the highest qualification: “Auszeichnung (cum laude)”. She studied with internationally recognized piano professors such as Angeles Renteria in Spain, Nelly Akopian in the UK and Hans Graf in Austria.
She is winner of some prizes in international piano competitions, such as First Prize in the Piano Upper Degree, First Prize in Chamber Music and Maria del Carmen Prize for the best female interpretation in Madrid; First Prize in the “Manuel de Falla” competition in Cadiz, Spain; Second Prize in the Boesendorfer competition in Vienna; Fourth Prize in the “Alessandro Casagrande” competition in Terni, Italy. She was also awarded “Mention of Honour” for the best interpretation of Spanish music in the “Juventudes Musicales” competition in Bilbao, Spain.
As a soloist, she performed in Europe (Spain, UK, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and Georgia) and in America (Brazil and Canada); as a soloist with orchestra in Brazil, Spain, Austria and Georgia and in chamber music in Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, France, Belgium, Portugal and Spain.
She performed in important venues such as the “Musikverein” in Vienna, the “Glenn Gould Studio” in Toronto – where her first CD was recorded live –, the “Palais de la Monnaie” in Brussels, the Claudio Santoro National Theatre of Brasilia, the National Theatre of Paraiba, Brazil, the Municipal Theatre of Sao Paulo, Brazil and Kakhidze Music Center of Tbilisi, Georgia.
In Georgia, in Jansug Kakhidze theatre, she was invited to be the soloist for the world première of Shalva Mshvelidze´s concerto for piano and orchestra, with Maestro David Muckeria as conductor.
She performed as an orchestra soloist with conductors such as Elena Herrera, Luis Izquierdo, Tulio Collacioppo, Isabel Costes and David Muqeria. Her past season in Brazil was just as intense, with many appearances as soloist, as invited artist of the Brasilia orchestra and in various chamber music formations, i. e., duos, trios, quartets and quintets.
Her last recording, with Chopin sonatas 1 and 3, was critically acclaimed. She currently continues her professional activities with solo, orchestra and chamber music, as well as teaching.
“I love this pianist. She has the facility of doing everything right while apparently doing nothing at all”.
“Ángeles Iglesias, quite simply, is a musician’s musician”.
