Lauded by The New York Times as "compelling, elegant, and incisive," Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Martinez is quickly establishing a reputation and earning praise as a versatile artist who combines "panache and poetry" (Dallas Morning News) with a "sense of grace and clarity" (The Star Ledger).
Pianist Gabriela Martinez makes her debut with the Buffalo Philharmonic, JoAnn Falletta conducting on October 18, 2014. She makes her debut with the Jacksonville Symphony on January 8, 2015.
Martinez produced bold sounds [in Joaquin Turina’s Piano Quartet] ... but never descended to banginess. [In Brahms’ Piano Quartet] Martinez’s piano was strong but consistently well-judged, and all four musicians displayed an artistic teamwork that did this dramatic composition full justice.
