Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"In 'Baroque', a collection of improvisations on Baroque themes, Gabriela Montero combines musicality and technical skill with soul... This album has that elusive X factor that only exists when the performer’s love of the music is so palpable as it crackles around the room that you feel as though you could touch it if you tried hard enough. It is music to let your hair down to, without discarding your brain along the way." -BBC

Notes & Reviews:

This album was nominated for the 2008 Grammy Award for "Best Classical Crossover Album."

Personnel: Gabriela Montero (piano).

Recording information: EMI Abbey Road Studios, London, England (06/2007-07/2007); No. 1 Studio, London, England (06/2007-07/2007).

With her 2007 outing, BAROQUE, Venezuelan-born pianist Gabriela Montero enhances her reputation as a bold improviser, taking on, not only all of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons," but pieces by Bach, Handel, and Albinoni. The latter composer's "Adagio" serves as the album's (relatively) expansive centerpiece, and allows Montero quietly to work her magic on the keys.
