Tracing the development of an exceptional musical talent from childhood to the beginnings of musical maturity, Karim Said is a lively fellow with a very endearing gift. He is a true musician, similar in some ways to Edwin Fischer or to Karim's mentor, Daniel Barenboim

Born in Amman, Karim studied percussion with his father and piano with Agnes Victorovna Bashir (alumna of the Gnessin School, Moscow). He has been applauded by established musicians and juries in several countries and already won nine international prizes. His distinguishing characteristics are his naturalness, both in his music and his personality, his humour, his intelligence and a total lack of pretence but, above and beyond these things, it is the way in which his music gets through to his audiences and touches people, that sets him apart.

The program seeks to capture all of these qualities and to watch his youthful progress in a story with which a great many people will be able to identify worldwide.
