BBC showed documentary on Alma Deutscher last night. It is well worh watching for anyone with access to BBC programmes.
For anyonewho has not heard of Alma she is an 12. year old girl who has just had an opera she has written performed in Vienna.
She started to read music at the age of 2 before she could, before she could read the written word. She has been home taught, plays piano and violin and has been compared to Mozart.
I would be interested to hear what others think about her incredible talent.
Last nights documentary raised so many questions for me.
Are you born with talent and how much can this talent be developed?
There appears to be so many similarities to the young Mozart.
