Blind Catalan pianist Tete Montoliu (b. March 28, 1933 in Barcelona) has long been a well-kept European secret but such situation changed for good in the mid 70s. Through the series of highly acclaimed recordings he has done for SteepleChase, this phenomenal talent on piano began to receive international recognition.
