Terry Eder's New York début at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall in 2004 received critical acclaim, leading to performances at other prominent halls in the U.S., Germany, Italy, France, and China. She was a prizewinner at the IBLA Grand Prize international competition in Sicily, where she subsequently was invited to participate on the jury. Ms. Eder is an ardent advocate of the music of Béla Bartók and other Hungarian composers, the result of a research project undertaken through the Hungarian Cultural Institute in collaboration with the International Research & Exchanges Board. She worked with pianist, composer, and teacher Zoltán Kocsis in Budapest, and learned to speak Hungarian, as part of this specialized study. Ms. Eder has released three recordings to date: Béla Bartók Piano Music on MSR Classics, Dohnányi Piano Pieces on Hungaroton, and Portrait on CD Baby. She is founder and director of the concert series KEY PIANISTS held each season at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and curator of concerts at North of History. Ms. Eder's current season includes a return to Weill Recital Hall in April 2019.
