Gabriela Montero My Venezuelan childhood portraits (World Premeire)
Shostakovich Piano Sonata No 2 in B minor Op. 61

Gabriela Montero’s visionary interpretations and unique compositional gifts have garnered her critical acclaim and a devoted following on the world stage. This programme reflects the two opposites of naive and child-like ‘innocence’, and the darker, potentially more dangerous landscape she describes as ‘experience’ through her own music as well as the eyes of composers Schumann, Chick Corea and Shostakovich.

In memory of John Harvey Hooper

Montero’s playing had everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power… soulful lyricism… unsentimental expressivity.

Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

Venue

Town Hall, Main Hall

The Town Hall, situated on Imperial Gardens in the centre of Cheltenham comprises of a Grand Main Hall, distinguished by its Corinthian styles columns and coved ceiling. The Main Hall is accompanied by dining and drawing rooms, as well as the Pillar Room bar.

The venue’s early 20th century Edwardian elegance makes it the classic ‘shoebox’ concert hall. With a seating capacity of 900, the Town Hall is perfectly suited to grand symphony orchestra performances with a thrilling impact.

There is no tiered seating at this venue for any of our Festivals.
