After numerous concerts in France and elsewhere in Europe, she made her U.S. debut in N.Y. (1962). She then made a successful series of tours in the U.S., appearing with major American orchs. In 1958 she became a teacher at the Paris Cons. A virtuoso in the grand manner, Darré produced a sensation by playing several piano concertos on a single night.
