Overview

As one of the most astonishing success stories in popular music, child prodigy Ethan Bortnick began playing keyboards at the age of three, started composing original melodies at the age of five, and entered the limelight at seven years old, with piano performances that outstripped the capabilities of even the most seasoned adult concert pianists. Many national broadcast appearances ensued, alongside celebrities including Celine Dion, Gloria Gaynor and Oprah Winfrey, in addition to charitable efforts that helped young Bortnick raise untoward amounts of money for social causes. Shot for PBS at Los Angeles's El Re Theatre, this concert film features sixteen piano performances by Bortnick that run the stylistic gamut, from classical to jazz to rock - thus showcasing the young man's diversity. Selections include: "What a Wonderful World," "Good Golly Miss Molly," "Circle of Life," "Waltz for Debby" and "Wind Beneath My Wings."
