    I can't be 20 yet because I can't play any Chopin etude. When you will hear me performing one of them, it will mean that I'm 20. So far I'm 19.

    I'm 21. Looks like I'm the ring-leader of youth mob so far.

    A whippersnapper can be of any age - as long as he can snap his whip. As that ability fades, wisdom accrues (there being nothing else to do).

    But surely a whippersnapper is someone who can snap his whipper. In that case, eligibility for that title is dependent on one's ability to find a whipper (your man who snaps his whip) and snap him!

    I found a useful definition of whippersnapper:
    "A young and inexperienced person considered to be presumptuous or overconfident".
    There are surely quite a few of these not a million miles from here, with very little in the way of useful comment on music to make to the rest of us.

    One of the facts of life regarding forums of this nature is that you get people with all sorts of experience levels. These places are not like schools where people can be easily graded. That of itself is not a problem provided the less experienced members use these places to learn and ask questions. The problem starts if when you come across the occasional one who tries try to act as if he knows far more than he does and try to put down those with more experience and knowledge. It comes over loud and clear that they're actually quite ignorant and just showing off what very little "knowledge" they have.

    If only such people realised it, the fact is that 99.9% of what they say is completely old hat and highly tedious. Hopefully once they have grown up a bit more, and had more time to let the works of other composers wash over them, they will in all probability die of embarrassment should they ever come back one day several years later and re-read the awful guff they’ve foisted upon the rest of us now. We can but hope.

    Holy cow! Polednice 21?!? Aramis my age?!? Yes I'm 19 too. Kopachris and Aksel a year younger?!? I was also surprised that Sofrinitsky was so young in his picture. This just makes me happy to realize. Maybe I'll feel like I fit in better here knowing this.
