Her latest recording is another adventurous departure, featuring 26 short sparkling works by seven South American composers with the daunting Piano Sonata No.1 by Ginastera at its centre.
The composers Montero has chosen to showcase are Ernesto Lecuona (1896-1963) from Cuba, Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1934) from Brazil, Antonío Esteves (1916-88), Teresa Carreño (1853-1917) and Moisés Moleiro (1904-79) from Venezuela and Alberto Ginastera (1916-83) from Argentina.
Many of the 26 miniatures Montero has selected for her CD are dance-based. The exception is Ginastera's four-movement Sonata No.1 composed in 1952 and generally considered to be his master work for the piano, demanding incredible virtuosity.
