Natsuho Murata, 11, from Japan, performs at the Concours musical international de Montréal’s ‘Mini Violini’ showcase in May this year.

Murata plays Saint-Saëns’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso and the Scherzo-Tarantelle by Wieniawski.

‘Mini Violini’ saw five winners of international junior competitions, aged 10 to 14, invited to perform on two consecutive evenings in recital and with chamber orchestra before the begining of the senior Montreal competition.
