About

Creativity lies at the core of Gabriela Montero's musical vision. A Grammy-nominated, Latin Grammy winning concert pianist and composer, Gabriela Montero is globally recognised for her ability as a classical improviser and, in 2019, became the first female pianist-composer in 63 years to play her own piano concerto at Carnegie Hall, New York.

Not content to build a career solely on the backs of bygone composers, Gabriela Montero typically devotes half of every recital she plays to her own, original music, often through improvisation. When asked by a journalist why she had turned to classical, orchestral music to compose "Ex Patria" (2011) - a work portraying the crisis in her native Venezuela - her creative manifesto was laid bare: "A musician must recall the past, comment on the present, and herald the future".

As a composer, Gabriela Montero would like to continue writing and publishing new works for her solo instrument, the piano, while adding to the canon of other instruments. In former centuries, composers relied on the generosity of individual patrons to finance the commissioning of new works. Today, thanks to Patreon, those patrons need no longer be single, privileged donors, but a global family of small contributors who, together, can facilitate the emergence of new musical works.

We hope you will support Gabriela Montero, a proven creator, in her efforts to generate the new musical catalogue of tomorrow
