WILFRED WORDEN (Pianoforte)
There will be nothing in Wilfred Worden's playing, as it reaches listeners by wireless, to betray the fact that he is a more boy in his early teens. He is one of those exceptionally gifted people for whom difficulties evidently do not exist, and who, moreover, play even at an early age with all the mastery and under- standing which comes as a rule only with riper years. Not for a long time has England produced a youngster of gifts like his; wherever he has played, in this country and in some of the Continental music centres where, the standard of criticism is a very severe one, he has been acclaimed, without any dissenting voice, as a remarkable instance of precocious musicianship. It is only five years since he began his musical studies in earnest, but already he has won a big reputation for himself alike by his astonishing technique, and by the ripeness of his under- standing. Within the last few months he has played to Paderewski, Sir Henry Wood, and Backhaus (who was himself a wonderful boy prodigy), and they have all been profoundly impressed. In other ways he is a perfectly normal youngster, with all a boy's natural interest in games and wholesome fun, and even the success which has come to him so early has done nothing to spoil his simple, unassuming youth. Born in Lancashire, he claimed kinship with another distinguished native of that part of the world, the late 'Trader' Horn. And besides being kinsmen, the veteran explorer and his grand-nephew were close friends, each taking a keen interest in the other's achievements. When he broadcast before, young Worden introduced himself to B.B.C. listeners as a composer also; in that direction, he showed the same outstanding gifts almost as early as in playing.
