Young Musician 2018

Postby Ratatouille » May 14th, 2018, 10:00 am

Has anyone else been watching and did you see last night's final.

The girl was won (aged 16) was astounding, a veriable genius but I have to admit that I found her unnerving. She could express herslf in music but she was otherwise almost robot like and rather expressionless. I came away wondering if she was either autistic or, she is a Chinese American, just driven to total perfection by her family.

We watched entranced ... the series is worth the licence fee on its own. The winner was/is amazing, but I would've chosen Maxim Calver the cellist ... so much flair and real enjoyment ... his playing had a magic that I felt was missing from the winner.

That's exactly what we felt Suffs. Just felt that both he and the saxophonist were signed up members of the human race and could let their hair down if required.

... and that came over in their music which gave it the edge for me ... and although I'm not a musician I know/ have known/ worked with quite a few and while correct technique is important, to be great a musician also needs artistry.

Rats - I think Pepper Pig left the forum at the end of April after what she saw as some bullying. She may still visit, though.
She's on the FB Wildfoods page, but I don't think either you or Suffs do FB ;)

I can't comment on the actual topic because we don't get that over here :(
