BORN PERFORMER: THE GIFT OF MUSIC
An absorbing story of the magical gift of innate genius
wrapped inside the miracle of synchronicity
ABOUT THE BOOK
From the day Berenika was three years old when, on a bus, she had her first chance encounter with a person who became a miracle in her life, to a last minute purchase of a ticket that led to meeting her future husband, synchronicity has played a role at every turn. Berenika is also a musical genius—her gift unmistakably evident at the tender age of two. By age nine, she was performing as a soloist with symphony orchestras around the world. She was accepted into the famed New York Julliard School at thirteen; graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and Oxford barely old enough to vote; is a Leonard Bernstein Fellow; has been presented to HM the Queen; and more.
But her story is not one about showcasing her genius, rather, about how her life unfolded through an uncanny succession of synchronous events. All would catapult Berenika onto the world stage as one of one of our century’s most brilliant concert pianists and artistic directors.
A magical story about the effects of synchronicity and fate on our destinies.
