    Hi friends,
    how are you? Some little surprise to remember old times...
    The first movement of Mozart's Piano Concerto KV414, when I was 8 (conducted by Ferdinand Leitner; children were playing in the orchestra as well); and Beethoven's Second Piano Concerto, when I was 12.
    Of course, if you think they are worth publishing (I doubt if...) please state I was a baby then!!!!
    :D
    Best wishes!
    Chiara


    Mozart - Piano Concerto KV 414, 1st movement
    Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, Op. 19 - I: Allegro con brio
    Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, Op. 19 - II: Adagio
    Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, Op. 19 - III: Rondo-Allegro molto

    Chiara, you were a very good pianist already by then. Very talented for sure and I assume you had a very good teacher too and I read from your biography that you began playing in the age of 3! That is indeed very early. I wish that outcome for my son (now 5 years old) who improves rapidly since we began his serious daily practice 4 months ago.

    I have no time to put them up right now but will for sure when I find the time in the beginning of next week with a little footnote mentioning the age when you made these recordings. Fantastic!

    If you have some warm hugs left, I'll chime in and say that already at age 8 you were a better pianist than many of us amateur plodders here. Such awesome talent ! The interpretations may still be a bit flat but one can not expect adult wisdom from an 8-year old. The perfect technique and touch are already there in the Mozart, and the Beethoven already sounds much more mature.

    These sound not bad at all once the ear adjusts to the constricted orchestra sound. They are fully worth publishing on the site, and if we were not to put your age with them, I bet nobody would guess.

    I probably won't get any warm hugs, but since Robert is busy, I have put these up. I agree that you are simply amazing in that you could play so well at such a young age.
