A prodigy, but I guess that's obvious.

Does she play anything interesting? All I can find is some rag, Debussy's Doctor Gradus, and Solfeggietto (only bits of those). There are a thousand child prodigies out there more impressive than her, from what I've seen. What's the big hype? That she's not Asian?

richard66- your comment makes me laugh.

Terez, I think it's because she writes her original songs as well as playing the other stuff. Here's a link to her orchestral debut on an original song.

She does play Mozart. I have heard it on You Tube.

yeah, I think she is classically trained as her grandmother is a concert pianist.

You do not need to think: she is in fact being trained as a pianist, not as a perfoming flea. There is no reason why she will not in time become a young pianist and not end her career as a "child prodigy". After all, Menuhin gave a concert with Bruno Walter when he was 13 and Glazunov was composing at 14.

I am avoiding mentioning Mozart, Meldelssohn and others who had a short life.

Well for me, I am happy to see such kids play at such young age. Doesn't matter what these kids play on the piano, I am just fascinated by their gifts in music and talents in playing the instrument that I so love to play.

Her last performance was last January 18, 2011. She performed a concert in Geneva, Switzerland

That's a very long time ago, especially for one so young. :wink:
