Teenager Alexey Romanov has become a promising piano player in spite of an illness that has robbed him of his fingers since birth.
Sixteen-year-old prodigy(奇才) Romanov from Zelenodolsk, a village in the Republic of Tatarstan, first took up music two years ago after being inspired by the works of Mozart and Vivaldi. In the short time since he performed for the republic’s orchestra, he has found fame on national TV.
Romanov’s music teacher at a specialist school for children with disabilities helped him get started, beginning with the melodies from films including vampire series Twilight and 1990s Hollywood blockbuster Titanic,both popular in Russia.
He credits two friends for teaching him the basics of music and how to read notes. “They still help me. They send me sheet music,which I study and if I like something, I let it settle inside me,” Romanov said.
Romanov, who is at boarding school in Tatarstan’scapital Kazan, was adopted two years ago. His adoptive parents, Vladimir andLuisa Levach Kovye, noticed his talent for art and bought him a synthesizer.With time and a lot of practice, Romanov began participating in competitions ——and winning them.
In February he performed with Kazan’s respected LaPrimavera chamber orchestra, which led to an invitation to join a music school in the capital. The young musician’s performance, seen across Russia, attracted admiration from the public and attention from the media. One Facebook usersaid, “We all are constantly complaining about life. One can only admire such people. The guy is fantastic.
Last week he traveled to Moscow for the first time to take part in the reality show Let ThemTalk and met Australian motivational speaker Nick Vujicic, which he said was a lifelong dream.
