Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Venezuelan-born pianist, Gabriela Montero, releases her first recording exclusively devoted to works by Latin American composers, Solatino. As with her previous, hugely successful EMI Classics releases, Bach and Beyond and Baroque, on Solatino, Montero turns her genius for improvisation to music by Latin American composers including Ginastera, Lecuona and Estévez. This joyous, bright album is packed with tangos, milongas, and swinging dance rhythms! This release aims to bring this fun, infectious music to a wide audience, and to introduce new audiences to a different genre of ‘classical’ music.

“This is Latin American music the way it should be heard, i.e. played by one with it in her blood. Phrasing and colouring are intensely human. Fingerwork is crisply articulated, whatever the speed. Montero's own works effortlessly complement the rest of the programme.” -Classic FM

"This disc has her playing her own improvisations as well as pieces, both showy and pensive, by South American composers including Ernesto Lecuona, Antonio Estevez, Ernesto Nazareth and Alberto Ginastera. It's all fiery and fun -- Montero, who likes to improvise at her concerts on tunes called out by the audience, strikes a tone that is part classical, part South American dance. The centerpiece is the virtuosic Ginastera Sonata, a showpiece she played on her recital with the Ramsi P. Tick Memorial Concert Series." Buffalo News (4 Stars)
