She was born in Santiago de Chile into a family of well-known musicians. As a child prodigy, her numerous performances in recitals and chamber music culminated at the age of twelve performing Mozart’s KV453 concert with the Chile Symphony Orchestra under the direction of the famous maestro Hermann Scherchen. The fact of having kept in close contact with Claudio Arrau during his numerous visits to Chile, as well as during the period of studies in North America and until the death of the teacher in Europe, make her feel “responsible for maintaining and transmitting the legacy of this great musical and pianistic tradition”.
She regularly gives master classes in Europe and South America, and is also a frequent member of international juries. She was awarded with the Dinu Lipati Prize in London and won the Munich International Competition.
Since then, her activities have spread to North and South America, Europe, Japan, China, India and Israel, as a soloist with the best orchestras and conductors, in recitals, chamber music, recordings and master classes.
The repertoire, bringing together composers from all eras, includes among many works the integral of Beethoven’s sonatas, Ravel’s complete work, as well as contemporary works.
In 1989, in the company of her husband Jorge Pepi Alós, pianist and composer, she created the Swiss “Semaine Internationale de piano de Blonay-St.-Légier” and the “Cours international” of which she is the artistic director until today.
Since the end of the year 2006 she has been in Chile, travelling from its mother country to fullfill the numerous activities abroad.
