Derek Paravicini was born prematurely 32 years ago, and doctors did not think he would survive.
He is blind and severely autistic, but has a unique talent that has stunned the music world - he can play any piece of music after hearing it only once.
Now he is to make make musical history when he performs a concerto written especially for him at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Tim Muffett met him.
