Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Max Darewski is an 11 year old prodigy. He draws crowds to hear his piano-playing, and to see him conduct the 'William Tell' overture; and his own composition 'Nelson's Victory'. In this piece he introduces 'The Death of Nelson', 'Rule Britannia' and other favourite tunes. While 'Rule Britannia' is played, a huge Union Jack bearing a portrait of Nelson is lowered from the flies. He makes a 'pretty picture in his velvet suit, red tie, wide collar and a smile that won't come off'.
