    Another child prodigy being “prepared” for the great career at an early age. He looks as if he’d rather play But perfect pitch.
    And for the competition – ex oriente lux?

    I’m not at all surprised by this result. I saw Luka Okros play at the Norah Sande competition in Eastbourne, UK in July (which he won). I thought then that he was one of the most exciting new pianistic talents I have seen in a long while, and I hope he has a major career!

    Let’s remember he is a student of Norma Fisher. No small thing. A worthy winner.
