This is one of the haunting melodies of a child prodigy pianist who was left effectively orphaned last month by a speeding boy racer. Fabiani Prcsina, 11, has won every contest he has taken part in after dedicating his music to his mother saying: "Every time I play I imagine she is listening to me in heaven." Single mum Fabiolla Prcsina, 35, was walking home in Romania after celebrating her birthday when she was killed together with a friend by 21-year-old Norocel Maturar, speeding in a high-performance car. She left behind her son Fabiani, who was left devastated by the loss and has taken refuge in his music. And ever since then he has won every contest he has taken part in. His teacher Adina Stan said: "His music has a depth I've never heard before. Since his mother's death he has been involved in three competitions and has won every time." Fabiani said in an interview after his latest win: "This award is a tribute to my mother who I miss so much, but who I know watches me from heaven every night and gives me the strength to continue playing." Only a day before his mother's death the two had been celebrating the news that he had been invited to play at a prestigious event in Italy, but without a parent it is unlikely it will be possible for him to travel there. Social services spokesman said that a decision needed to be made on who would be the new guardian of the child adding: "His father is clearly out of the question as the boy doesn't know who the man is and on the birth certificate the father was not named." Racer Maturar had only just got his licence back after it had previously been suspended for speeding. He celebrated by climbing into a high-performance luxury motor and speeding again, which ended when he hit Fabiolla and a 41-year-old male as they were crossing over a road in the city of Petrosani in central Romania. Both were killed instantly.
