Leia Zhu: Young Violinist with an Amazing Imagination

I came across this violinist (as I’m sure, MANY people have) yesterday and have been amazed by the talent of such a young girl. The violinist’s name is Leia Zhu and she’s 10 years old. She’s playing the Paganini Violin Concerto and giving the context, practice advice, and interpretation in these two separate videos. I’m amazed by her skill and mastery of not only the instrument, but the subject and historical context and interpretive skills! She’s incredibly engaging and adorable. Enjoy watching this video and this video. Also, check out her artist page on Facebook and her website.

 

^^Here is a taste of her performance skills!^^
