Sitting on a sofa in the living room of her family’s home in Vienna, dominated by a baby grand piano, Ms. Deutscher subtly, but clearly, rolls her eyes at the mention of Mozart, a comparison she rejects.


Quote
“Lots of people have been telling me that if I want to grow up, I have to compose music that will reflect the ugliness of the modern world,” she said. “I don’t want to do this. I want to compose music that I find beautiful.”


Quote
“I’m a very strong feminist and I’m really happy that I was born now, when girls are allowed to develop their talents,” she said. “Because if I had been born beforehand, I probably wouldn’t have been allowed to become a composer. I would have had to be a housekeeper.”


A very good read that touches on a variety of interesting topics - thank you for sharing.

She's already a phenomenon. This NYT article shows a thoughtful young woman who appears to be very level headed and unfazed by her early celebrity. I'll be most interested to see how she matures.

IMO classical music is as the name implies classical. I don't get the motive behind trying to duplicate music that has already excelled long time ago.

Is it duplicating to write a nocturne or an opera if those are not copies of what has been previously done but a fresh approach? I contend ‘no, it is not duplication ’. music doesn’t need to be atonal to be original.

IMO today's AI technology has reached to a high level. It might as well produce similar pieces.

She's only 14 and still learning composition. Who knows what her compositions will sound like 10-20 years from now...if she is still composing then.

To be frank I found her piano concerto almost unlistenable. Of course, most 13 year old couldn't compose a work like that but judged purely on its merits without regard to the composer's age it sounds like just a few minor pretty little tunes with the most basic harmonies and with no original ideas. Her skilI as a pianist are modest. l think part of her fame is due to her great personal appeal, sweetness, and genuineness.

I couldn't disagree more on all counts.

To compare with Mozart we can listen to what he was writing around 1769 with k45 or similar works. Most of his compositions imitate the galant pieces of Johann C. Bach and other composers like Durante. There are interesting melodic ideas in her concerto. In our modern musical environment where a song is often nothing more than a sequence of a few chords with some gimmicks it is refreshing. Whether this type of music has any potential future is unlikely but she is only 14 and will evolve toward something different.
