The life of a child prodigy through the window of YouTube is very different from the lives of child prodigies of decades past. I do like to keep up and watch my favorite YouTube kids develop.
The five-year-old who played an impressive and expressive Bach Gigue
is now nine, and playing a Chopin Waltz.
Then there's Umi Garrett who played a highly-impressive Gnomenreigen at eight,
a slightly faster Gnomenreigen at nine,
and she has also been playing chamber music.
