Gabriela Montero’s visionary interpretations and unique improvisational gifts have won her a devoted following around the world. “I connect to my audience in a completely unique way – and they connect with me. Because improvisation is such a huge part of who I am, it is the most natural and spontaneous way I can express myself.” Her artistry is as amazing as it is inexplicable. Her recitals, in which she will improvise on the spot on a tune suggested by an audience member, are unique experiences.

An early and outspoken opponent of the ruling political regimes in Venezuela, she has watched the dramatic decline of her native country from afar; the deepening crisis there has further stimulated Montero’s communication – in words and in music.

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