A triple threat—composer, violinist, and pianist—since the tender age of 6, Alma Deutscher has been turning heads with her considerable musical gifts for nearly all of her young life. Watch her make her Carnegie Hall debut at age 14, appearing as piano and violin soloist in a concert of her own compositions! On the program are her Violin Concerto, Piano Concerto, selections from her 2016 opera Cinderella, and her concert waltz Siren Sounds. Joining the young musical star on stage are soprano Natalie Image, tenor Jonas Hacker, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s under the celebrated British conductor Jane Glover.
"The G minor Violin Concerto she composed when she was nine years old has two exceptionally tight movements in the style of Mendelssohn and bears witness to a great melodic talent, but even more to an expert approach to harmony." —Michael Wruss (Oberösterreich Nachrichten)
