Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero wins the 2018 Beethoven Prize

October 15, 2018

The pianist Gabriela Montero who has exposed multiple abuses in her native Venezuela, has been awarded the 2018 International Beethoven Prize for human rights, peace, freedom, anti-poverty and inclusion.  The award of the Beethoven Academy in Bonn takes into account an artist’s engagement in the broader society outside the concert hall.

Gabriela said in a Facebook post, “I am very grateful for this prestigious award, if only because it will offer one more opportunity to give public voice to the millions of Venezuelans suffering the gravest imaginable consequences of a narco-mafia autocracy.” See also my earlier posthttps://humanrightsdefenders.blog/2014/02/28/and-the-nominees-are-oscars-for-human-rights/#more-4653
