"Pure Wonderfulness Par Excellence!"Great wishes for success to him!
I hope that his talent will carry him far.

I like shorty's style. But I don't know the nuances of classical music, so I wonder what an expert would say about his potential.I at least got an MP3 of this piece as done by a pro... for comparison's sake.
