‘For me, music is a purposeful art’, says pianist Gabriela Montero – the Venezuelan pianist who has put improvisation, and the spirit of creativity, at the heart of everything she plays. Today explores the revolutionary passions of Russian music, before cutting loose the way only she can: improvising a live accompaniment to Charlie Chaplin’s silent movie classic The Immigrant, right before our eyes- and ears.
