A Musical Phenom

I’ve just discovered Alma Deutscher. Here is an excerpt from her bio.

Alma Elizabeth Deutscher (born February 2005 in Basingstoke) is an English composer, pianist and violinist.

At age five, she composed her first piano sonata. At age seven, she completed a short opera The Sweeper of Dreams. Aged nine, she wrote a concerto for violin and orchestra. At the age of ten she wrote her first full-length opera, Cinderella, which had its European premiere in Vienna in 2016 under the patronage of conductor Zubin Mehta. The U.S. premiere a year later at Opera San Jose[1] was released on DVD by Sony Classical. At the age of twelve, Deutscher premiered her first piano concerto. She gave her debut at Carnegie Hall in December 2019.

She is expressive, she feels the music totally, she dreams in music. She plays piano and violin, each as if it was her main instrument and she is absolutely charming.

Look her up on YouTube and listen.

If there is reincarnation, I want to come back as her.

xx, Teal

Thoroughly enjoyed the pieces I listened to. Also enjoyed a clip in which she composes a tune based on four random notes picked from a basket or hat.

I am looking forward to listening to her. I can't imagine such an explosion of talent at age five.

Just listened to Alma's performance of the Mozart piano concerto K. 246! What a delight! I then subscribed to her YouTube channel. Such a vibrant talent! Listen to the concerto at this link:
