!!! I think i heard about her, she has Savant syndrome! if no one knows what that is, it's basically that a person is somehow impaired, usually autism, but they have astounding abilities in some field, such as art, music, numbers, etc. there have been a ton of amazing pianists, this is the first guitarist i've heard of.

Pssshhhh, WEEAAK. I saw an unborn bass player. He wasn't born yet. But he could play bass better than any born person could.

Too bad she can't play that piece.

I hate to sound insensitive, but there are wrong notes ALL OVER the place on that interpretation. Chopin's "Fantasie Impromptu" is way too difficult for her. Yes, it is a moving story, however that's a horrible interpretation, and there is nothing in that video to suggest she is a prodigy.

I think it's great how she's really devoted to music, however judging from that video, she really needs to go back and study much more easy and beginner level piano pieces.

I saw a program of a young boy (asian, of course)who had talents similar to this. It spoke of how when a young child can play as that, it is amazing but when they start to become older the awe inspiring effect begins to lessen.

Yeah, I have fond memories as a child of fapping to a porno with my close friends before sitting down for a nice relaxing evening of Runescape.

That doesn't mean she's a prodigy and that doesn't mean she can play that piece good. It's just a moving story, however that's about it.

You're a fool for doing so.

Its just that "young blind kids who have never touched an instrument in their life and can play anything note for note by just hearing it once" type stuff gets very old.
I hear this stuff all the time, and to me its not as impressive as it used to be.

Of course she is a prodigy. She is an amazing pianist, she is extremely young, and she is blind. If that isnt prodigy material, I dont know what is.

No, shes no Mozart, but incredible nonetheless. Definiately a prodigy.

Not really. A prodigy is very rare, and a prodigy is a child performing at the level of a highly trained adult. Highly trained adult pianists don't play like that. Whether she can see or not has nothing to do with it.

That's what she was trying to play, and it's not like she missed a few notes here and there. They were all over the place.

Prodigy? Sure. Whether or not she played a sh*tty interpretation of that piece? No.

She's a blind 5 year old playing better than most kids who get lessons. That's prodigy material IMO.

Most kids who are 5 and get lessons don't have a teacher idiotic enough to try and teach them something as technically demanding as Chopin's fantasie impromptu. If they did have a teacher that stupid, I doubt they would sound much worse than her.

Whatever. Call it what you want. Calling that a prodigy sort of takes away the meaning, when "prodigy" is a term used for people like Liszt, Chopin and Mozart.
