Fabiana Claure and William Villaverde’s heartfelt performance of “A Piano Journey through Latin America,” born of a deep knowledge of this music and an equally deep affinity for this repertoire, was a gift for our audience at the International Piano Series. In a master class the following day, Fabiana and William graciously shared their artistry and masterful teaching with our students, leaving the students challenged and inspired.
