World-renowned pianist performs on public piano in Connolly station


Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero was in Connolly station, where she performed some of the Mozart Sonata Kinderszenen, while on her way to Belfast last month.

“Since I was only able to practice a third of my repertoire this morning at 8 am before I flew to Ireland, I decided to go for it and practice at Connolly Train Station in Dublin. I had an hour to spare.” Gabriela wrote on social media.

“My hands were freezing, I felt ridiculous (totally exposed!) but I got through some of the Mozart Sonata, Kinderszenen, and a sweet old Irish lady shyly approached me to thank me.”

Gabriela Montero is known for her on-the-spot improvisation around complicated pieces, and is currently touring the UK.
