Which 8-year-old composer does the following report refer to? “A true musical natural talent. Besides the fact that he plays even the most difficult pieces on the piano with the lightest of touch and absolute taste, he composes dances and variations which on hearing entrance the music connoisseur.” Elsewhere, others consider that this wunderkind was the one “who could step into the shoes of Mozart.” His works written in childhood and in his teens are performed at the combined recital of Budapest Strings and János Balázs. (By the way, it is irrelevant that the above was written about Chopin not Mendelssohn. It applies equally well!)
