KIDS COMMUTE - Prodigy Week! Friday

Mar 15, 2019

Today we'll meet recorder prodigy Lucie Horsch

We’re glad you could join us for the conclusion of Prodigy Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. This week, we’ve listened to debut recordings of some terrific child prodigies; people who developed adult-sized expertise at an exceptionally young age. The Kids Commute team thought it would be fun to highlight a modern child prodigy, Lucie Horsch. She was born into a family of professional musicians in the Netherlands. She began her musical studies at the age of five, and by nine years old, she was performing on television and became a national sensation. Even though she’s already recorded her first album, she continues to study recorder and piano in the Netherlands. Today, we listen to a very impressive performance of the third movement from Antonio Vivaldi’s Flute Concerto in C minor from her debut album.
