Guest Artist Recital: Gabriela Montero, piano
Praised by The New York Times as a musician of "steely power, soulful lyricism, and unsentimental expressivity," pianist Gabriela Montero performs a recital of works for solo piano. Montero is celebrated both for her brilliant interpretations of the core piano repertoire and for her ability to improvise, composing and playing new works in real time in connection with her audiences.
A veteran of concerts stages such as Avery Fisher Hall, The Kennedy Center, Wigmore Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus, and Berlin Philharmonie, Montero is the recipient of many awards, including a Grammy® Award for "Best Classical Album" at the 2015 Latin Grammy Awards®, the 2012 Rockefeller Award for her contributions to the arts, and an appointment as the first "Honorary Consul" of Amnesty International, in recognition of her sustained efforts to advocate for human rights in Venezuela, both through music and public discourse.
