Extraordinary!
13 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw A Surprise in Texas last night at the Dallas International Film Festival and it is amazing! The film is well done and completely absorbing as you travel through the competition with these young pianist who are competing in the most prestigious piano competition in the world. Don't be surprised to find yourself holding your breath as they perform and clapping after several performances. I was moved by the talent and composure of these young people, many of whom memorized and performed over three hours of unique music over the term of the competition. Watch for this movie, you will not be disappointed!

I'll be watching the careers of these young performers and looking for other movies by Peter Rosen.
