Max Ball, younger than me by about 50 years, plays his piano reduction of the Rite of Spring, by Stravinsky. According to Norman Lebrecht, who is a real journalist and not just passing things along like I do, meaning he actually did some research on this kid, Max is self-taught as a composer and is currently studying violin with Greg Ewer.
The choice of the Rite of Spring is fascinating. What else does Mr. Ball have up his compositional sleeves?
Yeah, where IS this gym? I don’t recognize it.
Incredible! Such blinding raw talent! So ahead of his youthful age. (PS… that school needs a newer piano!)
