Gabriela Montero on Babel

Pianist, improviser and composer Gabriela Montero introduces Babel, her gripping new piece for piano and string orchestra.

31 January 2019

Babel is a colourful and inventive portrait of Gabriela’s experiences as a human rights activist for Venezuela. Using richly metaphorical musical language, Gabriela manages to convey her experience of trying to get across urgent messages in a world which wants only to talk, not listen.


Babel was co-commissioned by Scottish Ensemble, Kings Place and ProMusica Chamber Orchestra.
