    I did some research on this performance using Google Translate. In attendance were many music and government dignitaries. Gert had finished his prepared music, when a well known Dutch sports commentator unexpectedly handed him this piece asking him to play it for his father. Gert had played this a couple years previously for a contest (which he won), and said had not planned to play it here.

    A departure for Gert - he is wearing shoes instead of sneakers. He is competent with all sorts of footwear ...and pedalboards!

    All in all, a great performance for a young person who has played for only five years, not previously knowing how to read music.
