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.
