La Campanella is the third of Franz Liszt‘s six Grandes Etudes de Paganini, based on Paganini’s 2nd Violin Concerto. A demanding piece to execute, such as is common in Liszt’s work, it studies large hand jumps, often larger than an octave, and is a brisk paced Allegretto.
The video shows a 10 year old blind kid with Down Syndrome, Noboyuki Tsuyii, beautifully working his way through the piece and the subsequent standing ovation by the whole auditorium.
