Walter Aparicio

An active proponent of music by Latin American composers, Walter is committed to introducing rarely heard works to new audiences. His debut album, Aires Indios: Piano Music of Bolivia (MSR Classics) features music by Eduardo Caba, Simeón Roncal and Marvin Sandi. These evocative works that draw from Andean folk music are then infused with the stylized vocal quality of Chopin and the barbarism of Bartók.

Known for the warmth and conviction of his performances, pianist Walter Aparicio explores issues of cultural background and identity through his concerts and workshops. Much of his programming includes music that directly references elements of dance, language and folk traditions.

Walter’s notable New York credits include Symphony Space, the Cell Theatre, Steinway Hall, and Firehouse Space. Outside of the US, he has presented performances at the International Academy of Music in St. Petersburg (Russia), the Beijing International Music Festival & Academy (China), and Barcelona Piano Academy (Spain).

Walter is teaching online classes in the period of quarantine.
