Actually, I should say a mad pianist is being created. After her recital, Amanda decided she wanted to tackle some of the pieces the other music majors were performing. One of the main pieces is Brahms' Rhapsody in G minor Op 79 no 2.
Here's a youtube video of a young man's recital, performing this particular piece (we don't know who he is, but his interpretation is wonderful):
Another piece I think she wants to tackle is Aram Khachaturian's Toccata. Another youtube video showing a young man performing this piece:
It looks more difficult than it actually is to perform, although it does take some time to get to the proper speed.
Whew! Both pieces are awesome, and I'm certain Amanda will be able to play both with practice :)
