How does it feel to give up your entire life and move to a foreign country? In her recital, Gabriela Montero asks about musical uprootedness when all certainties break away. The music of three Russian emigrants who saw no place for themselves in the young Soviet Union meets Montero's own journey into the unknown: The star pianist from Venezuela freely improvises a soundtrack to Charlie Chaplin's silent film "The Immigrant" (1917), which is shown on screen.
