Gabriela Montero

I recently got a couple of Montero’s albums, one a set of improvisations on some Bach pieces, the other some improvisations on works by other Baroque dudes. Yeah, she’s amazing. Don’t be scared away be the hype around her. She really is tremendous and the improvisations are both clever and moving. I wish more artists of this caliber felt free to experiment this way.

Check the recordings out here and here. iTunes has 256 Kbps versions without DRM, as does Amazon.
