Son of a violist--err--make that two

This is what happens when two violists get together and raise a child.

Lucas Amory's choice of his top ten composers is, like Tommasini's, somewhat piano-centric (except for the Tchaikovsky violin concerto), and like Tommasini he shows a certain bias towards composers who were born after 1685, but the kid is a pianist after all.

The message here? Lucas listens to his parents (violists Misha Amory and Hsin-Yun Huang), and takes himself seriously as a young person who likes music.

I like the fact that he probably wrote the letter in black ink without signing it, and his parents probably suggested it would be a good idea to sign the letter, so he reached for the nearest pen, which happened to be turquoise.
