Gabriela Montera debut in Rome

Montero is an American Venezuelan pianist known for her improvisations of complex musical compositions. She was first encouraged to improvise by pianist Martha Argerich and now often asks the audience for their spontaneous suggestions, which builds up enormous sympathy and admiration among her followers.  She appears at the Argerich festival in Lugano every year and has also performed with Loren Maazel conducting the Los Angelese Philharmonic, with the Philharmonia at London’s Festival Hall as well as in Berlin, Vienna and other European cities. In her debut in Rome she plays music by Brahms and Schumann.
