Colin identified the first piece in the young pianist story as a Chopin composition, but I believe it was Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune that young Stanley was playing at that moment.

Nice story on Stanley Waters. However, my ears were jarred when Colin Fogarty wrongly identified "Clair de Lune" by Claude Debussy (so familiar to music lovers) as the music of Chopin! How did that get past the editors?

Thank you for pointing out the musical error. The story has now been corrected.
