"La Divina del Piano" improvises on this popular cradle song.
After giving a deep and thrilling version of Grieg's Piano Concerto, Gabriela asked the public to give her a theme to improvise on, then a brave lady in the audience inmediately replied "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"
Gabriela started playing on a baroque style. But that wasn't all folks, as the classical melody started to dicrease she tossed the piano with a superb melody in which, at least, I detected some reminicenses of brazilian folk music, similar to the music composed by the great Ary Barroso or Zequinha de Abreu.
I'm sorry ma questa donna e molto brava. Una prima donna
Gracias Gabriela, un enorme abrazo y todo mi cariño desde Caracas.
