His life will undoubtedly be linked to the activities in which he is currently engaged.
Meet Guillaume Benoliel, an 8-year-old French musician, who won two Grand Prix Virtuose awards in Salzburg. In this article you can see the hardest work of the gifted boy performing Rachmaninoff’s “Italian Polka”.
Guillaume was born into a family of eminent musicians. Claire, the boy’s mother, works for a consulting firm but enjoys spending time with her husband at his instrument. In the evening, the whole family (dad’s name is Dominic) plays music. The boy was sent to music lessons when he was 4 when it became apparent he had perfect pitch. Guillaume could produce any melody at such a young age.
His teacher Sergei Kuznetsov says he has met many talented children but has never had such a gifted student. The boy won two prizes at the Grand Prix of Virtuosos competition, held in Mozart’s homeland in the nomination of young musicians, and a special jury prize. As Guillaume performs the “Italian Polka” in preparation for an approaching concert, we can see his legs hanging in the air. The piano is always massive for the performer. But under his fingers resounds the admiring music of a pronounced composer.
Parents still do not know which path their son will choose. But they are already certain that his life will undoubtedly be linked to the activities in which he is currently engaged.
