Gabriela Montero

A classical piano prodigy from Venezuela, Gabriela Montero has played with some of the world's most storied orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Philharmonic, and the NDR in Hannover, Germany. Her first performance, at the age of five, led to a concerto debut with the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra ‘Simon Bolivar' just three years later. She was given a scholarship by her nation's government, and went on to study in the United States. Before she reached her teens, she had already gained worldwide recognition and won the Baldwin National Competition and the AMSA Young Artist International Piano Competition. Eventually, Montero would perform at such storied venues as the Lincoln Center, the Herkulessaal in Munich, and Orchard Hall in Tokyo. 2005 saw the release of Montero's debut album, Piano Recital, on EMI Classics. A two disc affair, it contained work by Liszt and Chopin, and a disc containing her own improvisational work. Bach and Beyond followed in 2006, and in 2007 she released the album Baroque. ~ Chris True, Rovi

Just beautifully written and played .so much emotion and so magnificent
Yes wonderful. She would be my Liz Story for improvised classical. Piano classical is so expressive. I think all classical pieces should be interpreted more and less literal.
Her music brings tears to my eyes. The listener can feel while hearing all the beauty of her musical talent. We are so very lucky and she is so blessed. Thank-you!!
She is fantastic. You can just tell that Gabriela has the skill and emotion to play great classical music. Her training has done her well. I hope she continues to play like she was born to do. Muchas Brava!

You've got to love anyone who can fly like this incredible performer!
I always love a woman's interpretati o n . And the wonderful up's and down's she can create.
certainly reminiscent of the classic composers like Bach, Mozart, and Betoven. well done, lass
Whenever I check to see who's performing that beautiful piece it's Gabriella Montero . Thanks for some delightful music!
Can't think of a better way to end a hectic day in the classroom. Thank you Pandora!

I keep tearing up at work.....thi s is truely beautiful!
Gabriela is sweet...had a chance to see her perform with the ISO...wonder f u l !
The original classical composers all improvised. Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin were known to create spontaneous improvisatio n s for listeners. Gabriela Montero is creating her excellent pieces in this creative tradition.

Touches my soul. Such emotion poured into this. Breathtaking
Talentosa y hermosa. Es un placer escucharla.
Breathtaking music! Accomplished so much so quickly. Truly amazing.
Thanks Pandora. Among jazz pianists (like me), there's a totally unfounded belief that a pianist with conservatory training in the standard piano repertoire cannot improvise worth a hoot, but only play the little dots on the page. (And some classical pianists can't improvise). But Gabriela gives a lie to this pernicious bit of gossip. Beautiful, soul-touchin g , breathtaking improvisatio n s that one can honor with repeated listenings, and then incorporate in the pianists' own improvisatio n s .
What an increadable talent. I'm glad I found her on Pandora. Now my home collection has a new face. WOW.
Amazing!
Love it

Lovely music. Her arrangements are unique. I like everything she plays.
She has such an amazing talent. I had never heard of her before Pandora - and I'm glad that I was introduced to her music. I have loved everything that I have heard of hers so far. Simply amazing.
How could this come out of anyone that wasn't just a beautyful spirit. DMB
Every time I tab over to see who I am listening to, it is her. What a lovely style she has.
