Gabriela Montero, in the half-hour audio version of our conversation, talks freely and with great lucidity about all aspects of her life
- about the conflict of being a single parent with two growing daughters (‘it has been a daily negotiation’);
- of rejecting the pressures of teachers, mentors and the music business (‘I felt like a prisoner of my own abilities);
- of fighting the Venezuelan regime (‘I can’t go back’);
- of the secular epiphany she experienced at the Chopin Competition;
- of much, much else.
