Classic FM Arts Daily Podcast - 24 April 2008

Bob Jones' pioneering podcast series dedicates time to the artists and organisations that make the classical world turn - this week he talks to Gabriela Montero.

The venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero has embraced the latest technology in a big way. Apart from being no stranger to YouTube and My Space, she can be seen performing twice a month online on her own website. She's inviting the audience to submit themes for improvisions, which, as Bob Jones discovered is actually a concept from the pre-mass media age.
