María Dueñas

A 14 year old Spanish violinist who displays a spectacular musicianship and affinity for the violin.
One to watch out for.
And unlike a competition in Norway where I was recently sitting in a jury and a similar talent – a 12 year old violinist – was ignored on grounds of being “merely technical” – which was sheer nonsense – the jury in the Vladimir Spivakov competition recognised talent and awarded her a first prize.
Bravo for a thrilling and spellbinding Paganini concerto Nr.1 !
