ALMA DEUTSCHER – famous musical prodigy

Alma Deutscher learned to play the piano at 2, the violin at 3. She started to compose at 4, wrote her first piano sonata at 6. What’s extraordinary is not her playing and singing skill, though great. It’s her compositions which are extraordinary, and not because of her age, but because of the emotions in them and their maturity far beyond her years.

If you’ve ever wondered what a genius looks like, look no further.

“I’m not a little Mozart. I’m a little Alma.”
