The new generation is unbelievable!!
Please enjoy the pupils of Stefan Schmidt from Friedberg.
Here are 2 videos of Leonora Spangenberger. The first at the age of 11, then at 12.
There is nothing I can say, only be quiet and listen.
At the age of 11:

Catalina Pires is already considered a young genius in the musical world. Her teacher/tutor Walter Abt is an out-standing classical performer.
You will find many videos of their solo performances (for both of them ) on You Tube.
His own CG interpretation of Rodriguez's Concierto de Aranjuez's Adagio is worth the time to listen.

Wow, that performance by Leonora is incredible irrespective of her age. I would happily listen to a performance like this any day of the week. The fact that she is only 12 makes it even more amazing.

There is a tendency to refer to young talented performers like Leonora as "one to watch". Well based on the second video, I say she is one to watch NOW!!

It's not fair that more children aren't encouraged to pick up an instrument. Whether it is because their parents do not have means or just are unaware of the potential that may or may not be unleashed-It's certainly not fair that we do not try to put more instruments in the hands of more children. We, sadly, will never know without the effort and encouragement of parents, extended families,and teachers

Bravo to the young lady and to those who influenced and provided her with the opportunity.
