Ana Maria’s research spans different areas: firstly, the discovery and dissemination of chamber music and art song from Latin America through recordings, new editions, and performances; secondly, she has increased the visibility of Collaborative Piano in the United States and abroad through the most important festival of this highly specialized field: The Collaborative Piano Institute. Ana Maria and her partner Elena Lacheva created the Institute in 2017 to put the spotlight on the needs of the next generation of inspiring collaborative pianists, counting with the support of the most distinguished, as well as emerging artists in the field. The framework of this Institute has also provided a space for many Latin American professional musicians to perform and teach, and it has also allowed them to share the wealth of this repertoire with the singers, pianists, and instrumentalists that participate in the program, who later on program these beautiful compositions in their own recitals.
Besides her musical training, Ana María is fluent in English, Spanish, French, and Italian, and a Geophysical Engineer who graduated Cum Laude from one of the most prestigious universities in her home country. Her thesis was published in the renowned journal Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interiors.
