Diz-se que há, pelo menos, 200 anos não aparecia um génio musical assim.
Quando se fala dele, fala-se de Mozart Mendelssohn e Saint-Saens.
Com apenas 14 anos compõe sinfonias com uma facilidade incrível.
O que disse a imprensa norte americana da sua 5ª sinfonia:
A gift for drama and for lyricism, expressed in sophisticated colors and textures … There is verve in the rhythms and invention in the harmonies; the tunes catch the ear. Movement by movement and start to finish, the architecture has a sturdy logic that does not preclude surprise. It is an impressive debut. THE NEW YORK TIMES
Obviously, the magic name ‘Mozart’ is unavoidable in writing about such precocity. [Some throw in Mendelssohn and Saint-Saens in this connection.] And yet, if you didn't know you were listening to the music of a phenomenal child prodigy you might think that some new neo-Romantic American composer from the mid-20th century had been newly discovered.
