Gabriela Montero’s visionary interpretations and unique compositional gifts have garnered her critical acclaim and a devoted following on the world stage. Anthony Tommasini remarked in The New York Times that “Montero’s playing had everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power… soulful lyricism…unsentimental expressivity.”
A graduate and Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in London, Gabriela Montero is also a frequent recitalist and chamber musician, having given concerts at such distinguished venues as the Wigmore Hall, Kennedy Center, Vienna Konzerthaus, Amsterdam Concertgebouw and the Gewandhaus. She has also performed with the New York Philharmonic and at the BBC Proms.
She made her debut with the NAC Orchestra in 2016 and was the recipient of the prestigious Heidelberger Frühling Music Prize in 2018.
Born in Venezuela, she made her concerto debut at age eight in her hometown of Caracas. Her most recent album features her own Latin Concerto and Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major, recorded with the Orchestra of the Americas with conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto in Frutillar, Chile.
