Recently I wrote about the history of the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Many people think Mozart wrote it. He didn’t – he just wrote a wonderful piece for piano based on its tune – Variations on “Ah, vous dirais-je, Maman” (a French song).
Below you can watch 11 year old Vi playing Mozart’s Variations…
Many thanks to Vi for letting me embed his video, thus helping us continue exploring variations on the theme of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
You can check out Vi’s YouTube page to view other videos of him playing the piano.

Wonderfully fresh – I hope I don’t patronize if I say how I love the ‘child’ quality in the performance. Totally unpretentious; all the parts played with such humour, so spontaneous – I could hear Mozart chuckling, just like he must have done when he invented this! Pure Jazz!
