Venezuelan Concert Pianist Gabriela Montero Performs At Earlham, October 27, 2012

gabriella

News Release: Earlham College

Venezuelan Concert Pianist Gabriela Montero

combines classical music and improvisation with a rhythmic Latin energy during a concert on Saturday, Oct. 27, at Earlham College.

The Artist and Lecture Series event begins at 7:30 p.m. in Carpenter Hall’s Goddard Auditorium. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.

Montero’s visionary interpretations and unique improvisational gifts have won her a devoted and expanded audience around the world.

During the first half of the concert, Montero performs Brahms and Liszt and continues after intermission with improvisations on themes suggested by the audience.

Montero says improvisation is the most natural and spontaneous way she has of connecting with her audiences.

“Montero’s playing had everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power in climactic moments, soulful lyricism in the ruminative passages and, best of all, unsentimental expressivity,” according to a New York Times reviewer.

For more information you can contact the Earlham College Box office or Earlham College Events.   Another great opportunity for cultural events brought to you by Earlham College.
