Latest Acclaim

“[Gershwin’s piano concerto]…brilliantly played by the Venezuelan Gabriela Martinez. Eschewing flash and glitz, she sat upright at the piano, playing with confidence and poise rather than excessive drama. … ...she performed flawlessly. Her accented syncopations were superb, and she gave the [third] movement a dramatic arch that was sustained until the last measure.”
