Mahani Teave: Rapa Nui Odyssey

After studying at the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Hans Eisler Music Academy in Berlin, Mahani Teave was destined for a big career on the international concert stage, having won the Claudio Arrau International Piano Competition in 1999, and later being selected as a Steinway & Sons artist. However, she returned to her native Easter Island (Rapa Nui) and in 2012 established the Easter Island Music School, receiving the Advancement of Women Award from Scotiabank for her leadership and work on the island promoting music. Teave has now released her debut recording, which features a generous program of works by Bach, Handel, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, and Scriabin, and a traditional Rapa Nui song.
