Who plays those interpretations of Bach?

MPR is regularly heard on the ABC News Radio programs and I am a keen listener.

There was an interview with a young South American girl who plays beautiful interpretations of Bach among other masters. I think that her name is Gabriela Mouton and the name of her latest album is Above and Beyond. I have tried music searches but cannot find it. Can you please help?

Kind regards,

Perth, Australia

Dear Doug, Greetings from Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Listeners to All Things Considered program were treated to an in-studio interview with Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero. Her new CD of Bach improvisations is called Bach and Beyond.

You can hear the interview (she's delightful) and listen to some of her improvisations here.

We hope this helps. Thanks for writing, and say hello to all our friends in Perth.
