Iara Behs, piano

Iara Behs is one of Brazil's most successful concert pianists. Her concerts captivate through the particularly original and charming way she presents her performances. The artist herself arouses the interest and curiosity of her audience in the works she is about to play with an informative introduction, where her knowledge of English, German, Spanish, Dutch and Polish as well as her native Portuguese serves her extremely well in view of the international character of her venues. Besides her activity as a performer herself, she is also engaged in training and motivating younger players. Her knowledge of the music of her native Brazil is not merely reflected in her performances on stage but is also passed on to others through her master classes on interpretation for students of the piano. Born in Porto Alegre in southern Brazil, Iara Behs completed her piano studies there, before continuing her studies in Germany, from 1989 onwards, at the State Academy for Music in Karlsruhe, and participating in masterclasses and music festivals in both Europe and South America together with pianists such as Bruno Canino, Rudolph Kehrer, Roberto Szidon, Lev Vlasenko, Homero Magalhaes, Dinorah Varsi, Miguel Proença and others, which greatly deepened and extended the breadth of her vision of music. Iara Behs's career as a pianist has already been crowned with a great deal of success. She won first prize in the Porto Alegre Symphony Orchestra's Competition for Young Soloists and was named the 'best interpreter of Brazilian music' in a piano competition held by the Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul. Her activity as a concert pianist has seen her perform in the most famous concert halls in Brazil and Europe, among others the Cecília Meireles Hall in Rio de Janeiro and the Palais de la Musique et des Congrès in Strasburg. She has also made recordings for radio and appeared on television.
