A very good performance! She has a bright future ahead of her in music.

But, in my personal opinion, her selection of Taps was not the right thing to play in such a setting. Taps is a piece that "should" be done solo, or echoed by a second player, without any accompaniment or fancy-it-up variations. I normally get teary-eyed at a good rendition of Taps, but not this performance. It was beautiful, she's a superb performer, but "it just ain't right" for Taps. :ugh:

While the talent of this young lady is incredible at any age - I agree with Jim in the choice of song. That was a spectacular performance none the less.

Actually, the YouTube title is in error...

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_Silenzio_(song)

for the history of the song she did play. It has nothing to do with "Taps" though it does bear some resemblance...

Amazing tone and control for someone so young - I know professional players who wish they could do a tone that smooth on-demand...
