"Your recital was a great success. We enjoyed the wide variety of music you played, particularly the works by Lili Boulanger, Fanny Hensel, and Louise Talma. I have since heard many positive comments from members of the audience about these pieces, as well as about the Beethoven and Chopin works."
Music Department Chair
"Once again it was my privilege and pleasure hearing you perform your magic on the keyboard. Though not completely familiar with the Haydn movement, I am well aware of his works and the sensitivie, light but firm technique he requires of pianists to do justice to his gracious second movements -- and how convincingly you did this, letting the gentle runs sing with your control so fixed. What style! What joy to witness!"
Pianist and Teacher
"Ms. Dybvig's performance was especially notable for the creation of a wide range of colors; there was never a harsh tone."
Professor of Piano
"Your concert was truly a treat. The audience was able to hear piecs they had never heard before, and more standard repertoire played with such musicality and technical command."

Pianist Teresa Dybvig played the piano from a young age, performing her first full-length solo recital at the age of thirteen. Today she performs as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the US, in Europe, and in the Mideast. Her CD, A Moment in Time, features works by Debussy, Hughes, Beethoven, Talma, and Chopin. You can listen to some of her performances, including a track from the CD.
Dr. Dybvig performs a wide variety of music. She is highly respected for her interpretations of Beethoven, Bach, and Chopin, but also has frequently paired works by major composers with interesting works by deserving though little-known women. Her programs have included music by Louise Talma, Lili Boulanger, Nazife Güran, Deniz Ülben Hughes, Marianne von Auenbrugg, Elizabeth Turner, Emma Lou Diemer, Clara Schumann, Fanny Hensel, and Judith Lang Zaimont.
Teresa Dybvig also enjoys introducing audiences to newer music. Olivier Messiaen's spiky multi-serialized Île de feu 2 and colorful Catalogue d'Oiseaux, Louise Talma's Americana-filled Sonata no. 1 and twelve-tone Etudes, and Stefan Wolpe's dense Quartet for piano, trumpet, saxophone, and percussion are just some of the newer music which have found their way on to her programs.
Dr. Dybvig has performed in colleges, universities, concert halls, and community concert series in the United States, Zürich, Istanbul, and Ankara. Below are a few representative venues in which she has been heard.
