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.
