Wonder what she does besides play and practice. :-)
Future career for sure. So natural for her. Wonder if her parents need to push her.

Certainly no reason to give up. 

9 yrs old doesn't tell us how many years she has been playing, or how many hours a day, or whether she has a good grasp of music in general or has instead intensively trained on a few impressive pieces.

seems fair....since she plays with great emotion, great passion...I can say that she loves music...not like other young violin players who are very very young...but when they play, they lack emotion, they are like robot, clearly being pushed by their parents...they are pushed to be "perfect"...yet it won't be perfect without passion!

cheers! - ⁰ℨ

I sometimes wonder when you see performers of this age and ability. Is it because at the very young age they are not subjected to negative world feed back of "you don't, You Can't, You never will" brainwashing.  She does not seem autistic or as a savant based on her finish and "exit" from the piece. So, It just left me wondering.

The young ones don't even know the meaning of can't or won't. So, they just do. Without a limit of a negative connotation there's only positive feedback they can build on. The sky is the limit. We as older more "mature" players start our journey with a life time of you can'ts and you won'ts that we need to fight a huge battle at each tiny step to make any forward progress. With our limited capacity to learn .. (see limited, I already told myself I can't) we find it difficult to comprehend and apply what we need to do to get our skill set and ability to where we see it in our mind.

Tyberius I partially agree with you.  However, the younger the mind the easier it is to learn.  Which is why it easy for young children to learn multiple languages where as adults have more difficulty learning a second language.  It's almost like a restrictor plate starts to develop the moment we are born and just gets more and more sophisticated as we age.  It doesn't prevent us from learning but it does put a speed limit on the process. 

I believe that at least part of that "restrictor plate" comes from the development of our own habits.  As a child we learn ginormous amounts of information all at once or very quickly and we essentially continue that pace of learning all the way through middle school, high school, and for some people even college.  Always adding more at a steady pace all of our lives.  But once we step away from the learning process, for some it takes only a summer vacation for others it takes years, it becomes harder and harder for us to learn because we're essentially forgetting how to learn.

Yes we all throughout our lives do still tend to learn something new every day but they are small lessons.  Where as, as children from even before we learn to walk we start to learn to speak, what to touch, what not to touch, what shapes are alike, how to move on our own, how different objects feel, smell, or taste.

As children we learn with our entire bodies for several years.  Then over time the amount of new information we gain from day to day decreases and so does our brains "expectation" for new facts.  Until it reaches the point where, when we try to learn a lot of new information once again our minds don't handle it as well and so it takes us longer to learn today than it did 20 years ago.

I once read online of a difficulty rating system for just about anything

1. beginner

2. intermediate

3. advanced

4. professional

5. soloist/ master

6. impossible

7. asian

So you see, its expected that some people learn better than others and then it seems the Asians can take it to that next next next level that leaves you amazed, in awe, crying etc...

 

(not trying to be racist or stereotypical in a negative way, this struck me as funny is all.)

It's funny to me as well as I think it overstated about Asians (I'm originally from an Asia country), as talented people are around the world and not limited to any region or country. What it is implied maybe of some Asian countries' tradition of very strictly discipline or self-discipline, sometimes inhumane.

@RosinUp: I think the composition needed to be related to western music to be understandable. If they were to perform their old traditional music then you would have no idea let along enjoying it.

I just fall in love with her...over and over and over. ... I hope the passion she  has for it is really and true and a rare treat and not a "pushed" thing.
