Baroque Album

by Gabriela Montero
 
Handel's Hornpipe takes an imaginatively wrought detour through Rachmaninov's church bells, while Montero whips Vivaldi's "Summer" and "Winter" concertos from The Four Seasons into a dazzling and succinct toccata.

Overview

Handel's Hornpipe takes an imaginatively wrought detour through Rachmaninov's church bells, while Montero whips Vivaldi's "Summer" and "Winter" concertos from The Four Seasons into a dazzling and succinct toccata.

Editorial Reviews

BBC Music Magazine - Michael Church
This CD is a brilliantly original display based on a superb keyboard technique. For Beethoven and Liszt, classical improvisation was a serious art: this statuesque Venezuelan proves the art is not lost.
Audiophile Audition - John Sunier
[Montero is] an improviser extraordinaire.... Ms. Montero really has something unique going on here.
Daily Telegraph - Richard Wigmore
The best tracks are inventive and fun, not least when she irreverently turns a Scarlatti sonata into a rumba.
