Robert Aldridge's Tango for Gabriela (1999), for Violin and Piano.

'Tango for Gabriela' has its foundations in several time-honored traditions: artistry inspired by the beauty of a woman, musical themes drawn from the letters in a name, andthe tango as a representation of passion. Aldridge wrote this work at the behest of his friend, violinist Boris Kucharsky, who was enamored of a young woman he had just met: Gabriela Skrabakova, a model and actress from Slovakia. Says Aldridge of his work: 'I made these pitches [G, A, Bb, E, A for Gabriela; Eb(Es), E, A, Bb, A for her last name] into a melodic phrase which is essentially repeated through the entire piece, as though one were saying over and over: 'Gabriela, Gabriela...Gabriela Skrabakova.'"
