The first thing you look for in 'direct reincarnations' is 'continued mission(s)'. This one eternal soul has the continued mission of being a great performer and composer who broke musical boundaries while leading the evolution of serious music through the centuries. The second thing that must be considered is timeline, e.g. Berlioz couldn't have been reincarnated as Claude Debussy because Berlioz was still alive when Debussy was born.

When child prodigies in history are discussed, usally Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is at the top of the list. Where did his 'gifts' come from? GOD chose him at random? No, GOD is just and random selection would not be morally right and fair. The 'random universe' produced him through probability theory and the law of large numbers? No, chaos theory states that there is only an appearance of randomness in chaotic systems and everything is connected with an emphasis on the 'initial state' of a system.
The law of attraction and the conservation of momentum strongly affect reincarnation as does the conservation laws of energy, consciousness, and information can't be destroyed, only transferred. In 2010, Stephen Hawking said, "I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark." Besides being very insulting to billions of people, there's an obvious fallacy here. Everyone saves their important information from their old computer onto a separate hard drive/flashdrive/the Cloud, loads it into their new computer and then begins to add to that.
Copernicus was reincarnated as Kepler who returned as Newton, who was reincarnated as Carl Gauss, who returned as Karl Schwarzschild who was reincarnated as Hawking.
