Composer, violinist and pianist Alma Deutscher began playing the piano at age two and the violin at age three. Alma completed her first piano sonata at age six, and at seven, she had composed a short opera. At 12, she completed her first piano concerto, which premiered in Austria to the jubilation of both the public and the press. Her full-length opera Cinderella has been performed in Israel, Austria and the United States to standing ovations and international critical acclaim. Alma and her family are close friends of Viking Chairman Torstein Hagen and consider him their adopted grandfather.
