UK’s ‘violin wonderkid’ Vanessa-Mae, for the first time in Romania

British violin player Vanessa-Mae, nicknamed the UK’s ‘wonderkid,’ will perform for the first time in Romania on November 20. The concert will be held at Bucharest’s Palace Hall, daily ‘Evenimentul Zilei’ reported yesterday.


With a music style she self-described as “violin techno-acoustic fusion,” Vanessa-Mae began playing piano at the age of three and violin at five. She was particularly famous in the United Kingdom throughout her childhood making regular appearances on television mostly involving classical music and conservative style. According to Guinness World Records, she is the youngest soloist to record both the Beethoven and Tchaikovsky violin concertos, a feat she accomplished at the age of thirteen. During this time she attended the Francis Holland School in central London. Vanessa-Mae made her international professional debut at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival in Germany in 1988, and that same year, she made her concerto debut on stage with the Philharmonic Orchestra in London.


On entering adolescence Vanessa-Mae broke away from her traditional classical influences and became known for her flashy, sexual style appearing in music videos in stylish outfits. In April 2006, Vanessa-Mae was ranked as the wealthiest young entertainer under 30 in the UK in the Sunday Times Rich List 2006, having an estimated fortune of about GBP 32 M.
