Clara Rodriguez plays in Washington DC

Pianist Clara Rodriguez comes to Bolivarian Hall in DC

The recognized Venezuelan pianist Clara Rodríguez will perform in Washington, DC, next Tuesday September 25 at 7pm at the Bolivarian Hall, the cultural space of the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the U.S. (located at 2443 Massachusetts Ave., NW).

Rodríguez, who has performed acclaimed recitals and concerts around the world since age 17, has carefully selected a program of Latin American music that will please fans of jazz, classical and world music with pieces by Ricardo Teruel, Federico Ruíz, Miguel Yánez and others.

Max Harrision of the London Journalists Association has noted Rodríguez’s technical skill as a pianist as well as “the sheer beauty of her tone….Most of what the Venezuelan pianist Clara Rodriguez played to a full Wigmore Hall on 20 December was marked by the sheer beauty of her tone.”

At the Bolivarian Hall, Rodríguez will offer the audience a repertoire of  rhythms that evoke a range of emotions including nostalgia and happiness.

This important pianist began studying the piano in Caracas, Venezuela at the Joan José Landaeta Conservatory. She later won a scholarship from the Arts Council of Venezuela to attend the Royal College of Music in London, and today, she is a professor of piano at that prestigious institution.
