“Some musicians are born with such astounding, God-given talent, that you feel lucky to witness it. That was the case, when pianist Gabriela Montero performed Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra – and then followed it up with a spectacular improvisation…” -Cincinnati Enquirer
