Current International President
Delia Steinberg Guzmán
Delia Steinberg Guzmán was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1943. In 1972 she moved to Spain and in 1975 was granted Spanish nationality.
Studies and Qualifications
She studied music from an early age and, at the age of 17, graduated from the National Conservatory of Music in Buenos Aires as a Teacher of Piano and Composition.
For several years she continued to perfect her technique under the Argentinean concert pianist Flora Nudelman and later under the Russian master Hubert Brandenburg.
She also obtained a degree in Philosophy from the University of Buenos Aires.
Her interest in culture and education as a means of personal development led her to continue her studies in other disciplines. She has taken specialist courses in archaeology, history, history of music, bioenergetic medicine and other natural therapies.
At the age of 10, she performed her first public concert and since then has often been selected to perform at piano events organized by different organizations, such as Asociación Cristiana de Jóvenes, Jóvenes Concertistas Argentinos, Ateneo de Cultura Artística, Nuevos Valores Musicales, Asociación Harmonicus, Department of Culture of the Ministry of Education of the Argentine Republic, Promociones Musicales and others, both public and private.
She has given numerous concerts at different venues, as well as on radio and television, both in Argentina and in other American countries, obtaining excellent reviews in the press.
On the occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the death of Maurice Ravel and together with other artists and journalists, she participated in the tribute to the late composer organized by the Argentinean Institute of Engineers on 7 July 1967.
In 1988, in order to promote musical studies on an international scale, she founded the Tristan Music Institute, where she gives piano classes. Currently, the Tristan Institute operates in Spain, Brazil, France, Israel and Germany, with an emphasis on teaching activities.
Since that time she has also been running music appreciation courses in Spain, including courses dedicated to the works of Bach, Mozart, Wagner, Chopin and Schumann.
In 1982, in order to promote new values in music, she instituted the International Piano Competition which now bears her name, forming part of the jury and promoting the artistic careers of young music professionals. The Delia Steinberg International Piano Competition is held annually in Madrid (Spain) and attracts young pianists from all over the world.
