If you want to be a concert pianist when you grow up, there are certain rules. You do start playing as a young child. You donâ€™t drop out of Juilliard. You do win competitions and get the attention of managers at a young age. You donâ€™t end up at 30 with no management and no bookings, raising the money yourself for your first recording. And you definitely donâ€™t make your New York recital debut with Bachâ€™s demanding â€œGoldbergâ€ Variations, which are supposed to reflect the wisdom of long experience, and Baroque style.
