31 Dec Watch 8-year-old prodigy play Chopin’s Fantasie Impromptu
Though for many, Fantasie Impromptu is a college level piano piece, this student has learned it beautifully at age 8. She has extremely developed finger dexterity and strength for someone her age. A long hand span is also needed to reach the octave (8-note) stretches in this piece. And the song definitely requires a sophisticated understanding of the subtle musical nuances in the dynamics and phrasing. Does that sound like a normal 8-year-old??!
A neat example for beginning piano students to see what they can aspire to (though definitely not at age 8)!
