Alice Herz Sommer: AMAZING

3 Dec

Meet Alice Herz Sommer, the world’s oldest pianist and oldest holocaust survivor and 109 years old.  May I never, ever complain again about frivilous things.  This woman is the embodiment of a positive will and spirit, and I adore her.

The Chopin Etudes are some of the most challenging pieces in concert piano repertoire.  She played them from memory, in hell itself.  She’s amazing.  Please watch this video, her story.  You will adore her too:
