    Uh oh, isn't she already fed up with the Mozart comparison?

    Pushing the boundaries of tonality and form? Wait...there are boundaries? How come I don't know about this?????

    I can't wait to hear Alma Deutscher's music in ten years time! It's most often the music from composers' late teens and early 20s that show certain maturity, understanding and individuality in musical composition when one has started so young.

    And I had no idea she is the subject of professional envy, can someone post a link to this?

    From the Wikipedia entry of a young female composer of contemporary music:

    [She] was born in Greenville, North Carolina and began playing the violin when she was two years old. Her mother was her first teacher. She began writing music when she was ten years old, mostly in imitation of the chamber music of Mozart and Brahms. At the time, her main focus was on violin performance....

    At 30, [she] became the youngest recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music
    At this point Alma Deutscher's fans are probably very excited. Vindication? Sorry... it turns out you don't win the Pulitzer for imitating Mozart and Brahms!
    Caroline Shaw, the woman in question, won the 2013 prize for her Partita for 8 Voices.

    I liked the random Darwin and Chomsky quotes thrown into that article for no good reason other than to have us believe the author reads, you know, books and stuff.

    And then the wheel turns around again and again.

    Next.

    It is in the nature of wheels to go round and round.

    If only this wheel would take us somewhere. If we could only hook it up to a vehicle.

    'Course, we have to unhook it from the hamster cage first. And then how will the hamsters get their exercise?

    You see where all of this is heading, don't you?

    FREE THE HAMSTERS!!!

    There certainly seems to be an uptick in interest.

    No, Art. This is just wrong. We may never know if you actually believe it or not, but it's wrong.

    We should just merge all her threads into her composer guestbook now.

    I'm going to claim that we have exactly zero threads about Alma Deutscher.

    I would venture to guess that we never will have any threads about Alma Deutscher. It could happen. I just don't think it ever will.

    What we do have is several threads about contemporary music which use the career of this little girl to advance an anti-modernist agenda.

    The interest is not in what she has or has not done. The interest is all in the attacking and in the defending of modernism.

    Attacking modernism, a popular sport since 1810!!
