G. Haendel - Harp Concerto 1st. p. Alisa Sadikova - 7 years old harpist
~IB~ has occasionally featured talented children and this young girl is definitely a favourite who has to be heard to be believed. Alisa has incredible musicality to back up her technique and is a joy to watch. Such concentration maintained throughout a technically lengthy and difficult piece which would be very demanding for an experienced adult. We must also remember that Alisa's hand span cannot be fully developed at this age yet her determination to emphasize the tune ensures her success, as does the look on her face when she has finished playing! Such a nice every day child with a huge talent. See her teacher's comments beneath the video for more information.
