GABRIELA MONTERO, album trailer: Montero "ExPatria", Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.2, Montero Improvisations

Gabriela Montero’s debut orchestral recording rejoins an age-old tradition of the pianist as composer and improviser. Both a personal lament and the collective protest of muted voices, Ex Patria reveals a Venezuelan homeland ravaged by societal collapse. It is accompanied by the beloved Piano Concerto No. 2 of Rachmaninov, a pianist whose own exile resonates profoundly in Montero’s affections. Three improvisations conclude, each composed and recorded spontaneously in homage to the improvisational practices of the Classical masters.
