Tsung Tsung is why I am bullish on China

Video below was taken about a year ago, then 5-year old Tsung Tsung exhibiting what a piano prodigy he was. This is obviously raw talent and true passion. It would have been a shame for not Tsung Tsung’s parents affording him the piano and the lessons. Tsung Tsung is another example of why I am bullish on China. The hundreds of millions of Chinese finally moving out of the farms, away from playing in the dirt, are finally getting a chance to unleash their potential. That’s all due to stable development. When James Fallows told the Anglophone media that the Chinese have no dream, well, we were the first to tell him: shove it!

    Re this video: this little pianist, though good with his fingering, plays rather sloppily.

    If you really want to see a a child prodigy pianist you have to watch Marc Yu who is following the footsteps of Lang Lang, acknowledged one of the greatest virtuosos at present, and Marc Yu’s hero.

    Here is the link to watch: http://www.cultureunplugged.com/play/7847/Born-Genius–My-Brilliant-Brain

    Marc Yu was featured by BBC years ago, under “My Brilliant Brain”.

    Thanks for the observation. When my wife brought to my attention to this video a few months ago, I made the same observation. Yes, he plays fast, but he plays sloppily. Almost rushing. It wasn’t a criticism, just an observation, as the piece is still enjoyable. You are still witnessing a wonderful gift.
