Gabriela Montero makes her Orchid Classics label debut with the world premiere of her first formal composition, Ex Patria, as well as her first concerto recording, Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2. She is joined by the YOA Orchestra of the Americas under Carlos Miguel Prieto. She says, "In recognition of the purest classical traditions, and in homage to the 19th century philosophy of Gesamtkunstwerk, I am attempting to focus on the totality of the artist's contribution to his or her art form, and to society as a whole. I am a pianist, a composer, and an improviser but, above all, I am a member of society."
