"Montero's playing has everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power in climactic moments, soulful lyricism in the ruminative passages and, best of all, unsentimental expressivity."
"...She flies, scintillates and takes no prisoners..."
"...Montero is a life-affirmer..."
"...The most viscerally exciting contemporary concerto I've heard..."
In recognition of her sustained efforts to advocate for human rights through both music and public discourse, Gabriela Montero has been nominated by Amnesty International as its first Honorary Consul.
