Pamela Viktoria Pyle has been recognized for her interpretations of the chamber music literature since Dorothy DeLay first engaged her at The Juilliard School. For nearly two decades, she served as a principal pianist in the studios of Miss DeLay and subsequently Itzhak Perlman.  This immersion in the piano and string repertoire led to collaborations with members of the Juilliard, American, Ying, and Mendelssohn String Quartets, including Joel Smirnoff, Joel Krosnick, and Daniel Avshalomov, as well as other soloists such as Robert McDuffie, Sarah Chang, Alan Harris and the Norwegian soprano Anne-Lise Berntsen. As an award-winning soloist and chamber recitalist, Ms. Pyle has performed throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Mexico, and Brazil, at venues such as Carnegie Recital Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Jordan Hall, and Wolftrap.  Her media recordings include CD’s on the Albany and Prairie labels and she has appeared on numerous television broadcasts, including CBS Sunday Morning, CNN, National Public radio, the Martha Stewart Show and the Charlie Rose Show. Ms. Pyle is currently Associate Professor of Piano and Director of the Collaborative Piano Program at the University of New Mexico and has been a Visiting Professor at Shandong University in Weihai, China. She is also the founder and Artistic Director of the New Mexico Chamber Music Festival and is Vice-President of the newly established RawTuba Foundation, bringing music and art experiences to people of all ages.
