Alma Deutscher, born 2005, is a composer, violinist and pianist. She started playing the piano when she was two years old and the violin when she was three. At six, she composed her first piano sonata, and at nine a concerto for violin and orchestra. These were followed by a piano concerto, a full length opera, Cinderella, as well as shorter orchestral pieces, chamber works, and numerous songs and piano pieces. Conductor Zubin Mehta called her “one of the greatest musical talents today”. Sir Simon Rattle declared that “Alma is a force of nature”. Her opera, Cinderella, has been performed on three continents to sold-out houses, and was described as “a once-in-a-lifetime opera-going event that had audiences standing and cheering”. A new production will be performed in Salzburg from Dec 2021. Alma has performed her violin concerto and piano concerto as a soloist with orchestras around the world, and in 2019, she gave her sold-out Carnegie Hall debut, in an concert dedicated to her own compositions. Her next opera, The Emperor's New Waltz, has been commissioned by the Salzburg State Theatre. Alma has featured prominently in the international media. Her YouTube channel has more than 14 million views.

Alma really is a force of nature. I don’t know that I’ve come across anyone of that age with quite such an astonishing range of gifts.   (Sir Simon Rattle)
