    All the very best to AD's concert.
    What are the elements of her music that makes her talented? Like specifics?

    Can you actually not understand the Israel Philharmonic's hesitance to play Wagner?

    As someone explained above, this is a concert devoted to music by children - nothing wrong with that.

    So you're saying that Art is posting specifically at these times to announce himself as "elite"?

    but...

    you're also mocking the people who criticise him...?

    (or am I missing something?)

    Because of her age, her remarkable harmonic control, melodic expression and emotional broad appeal to classical music listeners. It is pure music, no theory, no concept, no philosophy. As well as being a good person, being involved in charity. She is the sort of composer I would like to get to know and invite to my house to meet.

    This thread is so toxic and fun to read! The instigation/retaliation/venom levels are off the charts!

    I can't believe this kid is a subject of discussion in TC. As she gets older, the novelty of her supposed 'genius' will wear off and we will truly begin to see if she's any good. Praising her as a prodigy at such a young age is the cruelest and stupidest thing one could possibly do — she'll turn out to be an obnoxious, entitled and selfish brat who thinks the world revolves around her.

    You'll enjoy reading the original version then:

    http://www.talkclassical.com/35048-h...eard-21st.html

    (and for anyone else who's wondering where all this baggage and acrimony is coming from)

    (edit: though not the complete story: looking back over it now I see that a great many provocations, reactions and blow-outs have been deleted)

    Was that really just last November? I feel like I've aged a decade since then.

    Why if music not philosophical in nature is that the best form of music?

    It's almost like none of this is that serious and everyone should relax!

    The 1337 thing was just a stupid joke and wasn't really related to anything.
