Pianist, composer and improviser Gabriela Montero. Shelley Mosman

Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero has been playing the Piano Concerto by Edvard Grieg since she was 11 years old... her original copy of the music is decorated with the Hello Kitty stickers. Montero is now 46, and she just recently bought a new copy of the music. On Thursday's Performance Today, the ever-youthful Gabriela Montero performs Grieg's Piano Concerto with the Houston Symphony, Andres Orozco-Estrada conducting.
