Young Talent: Trevor and the Rach II

Trevor is a junior in high school and son to Cheryl of A Round Unvarnish'd Tale.

You might also know Trevor's dad from Fine Tuning and Liturgy Solutions.

Trevor played this piece in competition earlier this month. There must have been some stiff competition, as he did not even earn honorable mention.

If you've seen the movie Shine, you may remember that the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #3 (aka the Rach III) was considered the most difficult piano piece ever.

Here's Trevor with what I would consider the second most difficult piano piece ever, the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #2. I have listened to this now over five times and each time is as thrilling as the last!

In case you are wondering, That's Trevor on the front piano and his dad on the piano in the background.


If you know of, or come across any young talent out there, feel free to drop the info into any comment box here at All for Hymn.


  1. Thanks for making this more widely available, Iggy! By the way, Trevor is going to continue the process of tweaking and polishing his performance and will take this piece to another competition in April. We'll let you know how that goes!

  2. The performance is STILL awesome, and I am sure he will due awesome work in his next competition!
