    This is a friend of my son. The kid is crazy good for 14 years of age. Dropped out after his first semester as a freshman to concentrate on his art and is now home schooled. A second cousin of my kids is a piano major at Bucknell. This kid makes her look like a rank amateur!

    Here he's playing Sain-Saens Piano Concerto in Gminor:

    He has more than just that one on you tube:

    Wonder if he will enter competitions? Or has he already?

    Take a gander at this kid, 9 yo, wins the competition, I think in China, what do you think on professional level analysis of his playing?

    I picked the Saint Saens because of it's diabolical difficulty and which I think showcased his talent clearly. The Chines kid is excellent indeed. Boy there si talent out there in droves! My only criticism of the Chines pianist is his reliance on athletic bravado. Has yet to mature, but once he does and injects poetry into his playing he'll be beyond awesome!
