Alma Deutscher, aged 10, performs her own Violin Concerto with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in 2015 on a 3/4-sized French violin.
The British violinist, pianist and composer has recently been signed to classical music agency Askonas Holt. In addition to her Violin Concerto, the young musician has composed violin and piano sonatas, string quartets, and full-length opera ‘Cinderella’. She began playing the piano at the age of two and violin aged three.
‘Alma has a unique combination of gifts as a pianist, violinist and, perhaps most significantly, a composer,’ reads the Askonas Holt website. ‘Our responsibility is to advise the Deutschers on the best possible development for Alma and we look forward to a long and happy collaboration.’
