In this installment of The David L. Abell Piano Masters Series, pianist Gabriela Montero, winner of the Latin Grammy® for Best Classical Album, will perform her original composition Piano Concerto No. 1, the "Latin" Concerto. Immediately following the performance, Gabriela will conduct a masterclass for UCLA student pianists.
This event is made possible thanks to a gift from Barbara Abell who established The David L. Abell Piano Masters Series in honor of her late husband. Pianos were a passion for David, the owner of David L. Abell’s Fine Pianos in Los Angeles, which became a hot-spot for musical legends such as Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Andre Previn, George Shearing, Bob Hope, Tony Bennett, and Benny Carter. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2020-21 David L. Abell Piano Master Series.
