Your eyes will be amazed when you see this 10-year-old child prodigy beautifully play the piano. Alexandra Dovgan started to study piano at the young age of 5. It was obvious that this girl had incredible talent as she continued her studies. Before too long, Alexandra started to gain recognition for her gift and even won various awards and competitions.
This particular clip is from the 2018 Grand Piano Competition. Alexandra is effortlessly playing ‘Concerto for Piano No. 1 in G Minor, Op. 25’ from Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. Just watch as she furiously glides over the keys with such passion. Her hands are moving so fast, that I can barely keep up. Somehow, this young girl makes every single note seem easy.
I know that it takes so much time and practice in order to perfect these numbers but Alexandra shows no signs of difficulty. In fact, she won the entire competition with this piece. It always amazes me to see children stepping on stage and performing just like an adult, or even better. When we see kids, we don’t expect them to be at the same level as an older performer.
But sometimes, a child with a rare gift emerges and completely blows everyone away. In this case, Alexandra isn’t just a skilled pianist; she is one of the best, regardless of age. We all know how much time and practice it takes to become a professional and when we see a young person who’s only been on this Earth a few years with such talent, it’s very special.
I hope that Alexandra continues to follow her passion and play the piano so that all of the world can hear her beautiful gift.
