“Montero’s playing had everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power ... soulful lyricism ... unsentimental expressivity.” — Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

In addition to her brilliant interpretations of the core piano repertoire, Gabriela is also celebrated for her ability to improvise, composing and playing new works in real time.

She says, “I connect to my audience in a completely unique way – and they connect with me. Improvisation is such a huge part of who I am, it is the most natural and spontaneous way I can express myself.”

A pre-concert talk by Zaide Pixley, PhD, Professor Emerita, Kalamazoo College, will be held at 7:00 PM (free for ticketholders).
