<< He was not an average high school musician.>>

<<The question to me would have been whether a person of his age could have
exhibited the kind of musical maturity and understanding required to be a
successful member of a major orchestra. >>

I think each individual is unique and should not be judged by age alone. I
agree that there is no substitute for experience, but there can be exceptions
(Morales, Yeh, Drucker). Remember, quite a few orchestral/opera works were
composed by exceptional children...Mozart, Beethoven, etc.
