The kids have done it again. Some stunning performances on real works from memory. Just three kids this days, the oldest in Year 10 and sporting an AMusA, no less. All from the studio of Elena Nikulina. The Russians must have it as the Chinese do too. Victor Ni played Bach, Haydn and Chopin. Hannah Ni played Chopin and Debussy. The eldest, Eric Wong, played Beethoven and Mendelssohn. There were were minor lapses which they picked up well but more impressive was the busy fingerwork, the effective balance between parts and hands, the preparation as each sat a little before performance. I remain in awe.
Victor Ni, Hannah Ni, Eric Wong, all form the studio of Elena Nikulina, performed at Wesley.
