GABRIELA MONTERO, piano
Sunday, October 13, 3pm
Improvisation is expected in comedy, integral to jazz, the mission of many theater troupes. But improvisation in classical music? Almost unheard of…except in the performances of Caracas-born pianist Gabriela Montero. Playing since the age of five, she is celebrated for real-time improvisations of sophisticated music. Yes, she is true to the art and architecture of standard classical fare, but her concerts have a matchless pizzazz when she creates music on-the-fly, often starting with melodies suggested by audience members.
