    No other young musician of our time has so often been labeled a “child prodigy” as the British Alma Deutscher, who was born in 2005. She began playing piano at the age of two; the following year, she commenced violin lessons. And she makes her Lucerne debut with both instruments. But there’s more, for Alma Deutscher also composes. She has produced trios, sonatas, a violin concerto, and even a full-length opera: Cinderella, which was premiered in 2016 in Vienna. And she has won prominent champions, especially Sir Simon Rattle. Alma loves the musical language of the Classical and Romantic eras. Which is why it bothers her when listeners or critics try to count the dissonances in her works. “I hope that in ten years’ time, it will not be considered a crime to want to compose beautiful music,” she recently declared in an interview with the Standard. And her desire for the future? “That my concertos and symphonies that I still want to write will be performed by the Vienna Philharmonic in the Musikverein.”
