Child prodigy Greek composed “Waltz of Isolation” for a world in quarantine


ATHENS, 6 jul (Reuters) – “Stay in their homes a little more” is the message that a pianist Greek of 7 years sent to a world in quarantine by the coronavirus with his last composition, called “Waltz of the isolation.”

Stelios Kerasidis was presented for the first time in public at the age of 3 and has played at the Carnegie Hall in New York and at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

“Hi guys! I’m Stelios, I’m also at home. We be a little more patient and soon we will come out to swim in the sea! I dedicate a piece of me,” he says in a YouTube video before playing a nostalgic melody and hypnotic.
The clip has had more than 42,000 views on YouTube.

Stelios also composed two concerts for piano, “Veronika” and “Anastasia”, which carry the name of their sisters.
“Music is my whole world,” he said to Reuters last year, while his fingers danced over the keys and his feet barely reach the ground from his stool.

The son of a piano teacher, the piano favorite is the late canadian Glenn Gould, known for his interpretations of JS Bach.
