astounding. In addition to an incredible ability with the piano, Paravicini has what seems to be a computerized type of memory of a wide variety of songs across all musical spectrums.
Paravicini can instantly play, upon request, any song that he's heard in his life, and able to do so in any style requested.
Basic non-musical requests, however, such as showing a requested number of fingers, are well beyond his ability, it seems. When an interviewer asked him if he can raise three fingers, Paravicini was clearly confused and lost.
Paravicini's stunning piano ability contrasted with his severely limited functional and cognitive abilities in everyday life make him a rare and gifted talent.
I put a clip of a 60-minutes interview of Derek so you can get a taste and appreciation of this talent.
This Thursday I am posting a start of an important
discussion of Sharia Law. It will be up at least for Thursday and Friday. I hope you don't miss it as I am sure many of you will have some good comments on the subject.
