I was born in a place where people sing as a daily thing, where parents teach their children to play Cuatro, our national musical instrument. The original name is Variquecemeto, an indigenous word that means “ river of turbid water”. This term eventually became Barquisimeto, principal city of Lara state, in Venezuela.
Innocence, purity, love, joy, simplicity. These are own feelings of children. And this is what is reflected in every little piece of this musical treasure of the piano. Tenderness and nostalgia of Kinderscenen (Childhood Scenes) op.15, by Robert Schumann, comes to the depths of the heart. Claude Debussy plunges us into a world of colors and games in his beautiful Children´s Corner, which it was dedicated to his only daughter, Chou-Chou. The beauty of the simple melody attached to a rich and active harmony are the essence of the 17 piezas infantiles, by Antonio Estévez, a kindness work that remember us our ancestral roots and transport us to a magical world of games, children¨s stories and traditions of the Venezuela of early 20 th century.
