Talented Teens! June 23, 2011

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

These two teenagers – on cello and on violin – do a very fine job with “Let It Be” by the Beatles.

In fact, they remind me of Captain Jack Aubrey and his friend Stephen Maturin in the novels by Patrick O’Brian.

The movie starring Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) is very good, but I recommend that you start with one of the novels. Any one, actually. Aubrey and Maturin often play classical music on cello and violin on Aubrey’s ship, HMS Surprise.

These young musicians, Michael Province, violinist (age 15), and Nathan Chan, cellist (age 16), are very skilled and very clever. We should keep an eye on them, because they are going places!
