Sunday 23rd February

Gabriela Montero is one of the leading lights in piano playing today. Born in Venezuela, Gabriela gave her first public performance at the age of five. Ms Montero is renowned for her sensitive interpretations as well as her rare improvisation skills. For this one-off concert in Drogheda, she will perform familiar works by Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann before playing some of her entertaining improvisations, which are often inspired by audience requests. 

"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." - New York Times

Mozart Piano Sonata No. 10 in C Major, K. 330 (24’)
