Pianist and cellist combine for recital
Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero offers a recital with French cellist Gautier Capuçon on May 15th at 8pm at the Pérez Galdós Theatre in the Gran Canaria capital.
It is an intimate concert in which both performers will tackle works for piano and violin by Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartoldy and Sergei Rachmaninov. This concert has the collaboration of the Philharmonic Society of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Born in Venezuela, Gabriela gave her first recital at the age of five. At eight, she made her debut with an orchestra in Caracas that earned her a scholarship to study in the US. From there, she would go to London where she continued her studies, graduating with honours. The same precocity was shown by her partner on this occasion, the French cellist Gautier Capuçon who also started playing at the age of five. Winner of several international competitions, his solid career has made him a true ambassador of the cello.
