Welcome to Peabody at The Mainstay! This new concert series presents some of the most exciting young musicians attending the Peabody Conservatory and is sponsored by the Hedgelawn Foundation. This afternoon we present powerhouse pianist Teodora Adzharova.
Born in the ancient Bulgarian city of Plovdiv, pianist Teodora Adzharova began her musical studies at age 7. By the time she graduated high school, she had won international competitions across Europe. She then joined the Bulgarian National Academy of Music where she threw herself into her studies, determined to succeed. With news of her abilities spreading, she was given a full scholarship to come to the United States to study with world-renowned concert pianist Neil Rutman. After completing her studies with Rutman, she was once again offered a full scholarship, this time at the Peabody Conservatory, where she is completing the Doctorate in Piano Performance under revered pedagogue Ellen Mack.
Ms. Adzharova is one of the most in-demand collaborative pianists in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. Her powerful sound and rhythmic drive have supported sopranos, cellists, harpists, and even classical saxophonists. An avid proponent of modern music, Ms. Adzharova performs regularly with genre-stretching saxophonist John Thomas. This afternoon she will present keyboard works by Robert Schumann and Dimitri Shostakovich. From the most introspective and quiet moments Schumann to the bombast and power of late Shostakovich, this is a program for lovers of the piano. Don’t miss this finale concert to the first spring cycle of the Hedgelawn Classical Series at the Mainstay!
