I was fortunate to see Alma Deutscher's Canadian debut on April 13, 2018. She was born in England in 2005. Alma is a wonderful composer, excellent pianist and violinist. She began to play the piano when she was two, the violin at three and started composing at four. She produced her first piano sonata at six, her beautiful violin concerto at age eight. and she wrote a full length opera, Cinderella at ten. The opera received its fully staged production in Vienna in 2016 at the invitation of Maestro Zubin Mehta.

Alma has written concertos for piano and violin, as well as works for symphony orchestra and now two operas. Her ability to imagine melodies is innate, and connected to her impressive skills in improvisation. She has a sense of wonder and curiosity about music that suits her age, but she is mature in her focus on her craft. Her industriousness comes out of a simple love for the work, and she even seems capable of enjoying her unique life, and she always wants to be a composer.
I looked her up on the internet and U-tube and she is really amazing.
I looked her up as well and she is incredible. Nice to see a young person so dedicated to something beautiful.
She is so awesome! After I upload my CD innards I'll put some of Alma here!
Alma is truly an amazing young musician; composer as well as performer.
