Armstrong aged 8, 9, 11
Mozart Concerto 24
"Here's the gifted pianist Kit Armstrong at nine years of age playing his first Mozart Concerto with an orchestra. I had invited him to play Mozart's A Major Concerto based on a performance I heard at Music Teachers' Association of California Convention in July of that year. Three weeks before this posted performance he asked to play the c minor Concerto - complete with his own cadenza mind you - instead. So here it is - on a program series titled "KIDS PLAY THE DARNDEST THINGS". I'm sure you will enjoy it. Fasten your seatbelt....(His teacher and coach for this performance was Dr. Mark Sullivan in Long Beach, Ca - Bravo!)"
