A triumph at the opening concert of the Carinthian Summer Music Festival in Austria, with a concert dedicated to Alma’s own compositions. Alma played as soloist with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra her violin concerto and the world premiere of a newly composed piano concerto, and the audience went wild with excitement. Even the standing seats in the hall were sold out, and there were standing ovations for both Alma’s violin concerto and the new piano concerto. The press was also exuberant. Die Kronenzeitung wrote: Flying fingers, grand music. Jubilation at the opening concert of the Carinthian Summer, which turned into a triumph of creativity. With agile, powerful, festive tones Alma creates musical wonders. Die Kleine Zeitung wrote: Amazing sounds of a miracle child. Composer and soloist Alma Deutscher caused jubilation at the opening of the Carinthian Summer. Alma Deutscher thrilled with enormous virtuosity and self-assured maturity… Because the jubilation of the audience did not end, Alma gave a pianistic encore – and what an encore! She began to improvise and the sparks were flying.
