Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This disc surveys various facets of musical Romanticism, encompassing the central pillars of 19th-century piano writing, Spanish-speaking musical nationalists, and Russian composer/pianists who reinterpreted the profound influences of Chopin and Liszt in new harmonic and coloristic terms.

BBC Music Magazine
No matter how jaw-dropping her miraculously clean-fingered negotiation of such as Liszt's Mephisto Waltz, it's what happens between the notes, the way she grippingly characterises everything she plays, that constantly arrests the listener's attention. not since George Cziffra's hey-day have such white-hot, volcanic eruptions of pianistic derring-do been captured on disc. ...Montero also magics her phrasing poetically, as witness Chopin's heavenly D flat Nocturne. But what sets the seal on this remarkable release is the bonus disc of Montero's self-penned improvisations, whose jazz-styled inflections will have all die-hard romantics misting over on contact. Her spine-tingling rethink of Rachmaninov's Vocalise is worth the price of the disc alone.
