czardas on recorder

We’ve heard Vittorio Monti’s finger-busting Czardas on violin, clarinet and more - but this kid absolutely nails it on the most unlikely of instruments.

We’re super-impressed by this guy, Mu-Chien Chen, who recorded this performance back in 2010 when he was just 15 years old.

He’s a veritable YouTube star, with various virtuosic performances uploaded besides this one.
