Biography

Born in 2005, Alma Deutscher could name the notes on a piano by the age of two. She was given her first violin for her third birthday, and was playing Handel sonatas within a year. Young Alma is now a proficient violinist, pianist and composer whose musical gifts glean frequent comparisons with another child prodigy: Mozart.
Alma started improvising when she was four years old and composing when she was five, and in 2012 composed a short opera called The Sweeper of Dreams, which narrowly missed out on making the final of a contest run by the English National Opera to unearth young, talented classical musicians.
