"It was really good and really exciting to hear my piece played by the Philharmonic," said George Frankle, 13-year-old composer.

"It's certainly every mother's dream, we hope it's just the beginning," said Joan Frankle, mother.

"Performance by the New York Philharmonic of any composer's work would constitute the highlight of that composer's life," said Jon Deak, music teacher.

George started playing the piano when he was five years old. His music teacher describes him as "incredibly gifted, with very musical ideas."
