"She is, like Mozart and Mendelsson
before her time, a true child prodigy"
and her Music
( page 2 )
Since the age of 3, Vanessa-Mae has honed her art as instrumentalist and
composer with dedication and courage. She has developed a unique career,
on the one hand championing classical musicand it's great traditions and
on the other defying convention by pioneering a whole new concept of violin
She calls this 'techno-acoustic fusion' violin music. It is contemporary,
different and has been described by an admirer as "newer than classical,
stronger than pop". Initially it caused outrage among some die-hard
traditionalist critics, but has proved enormously popular aroung the world
among music lovers of all kinds. It is admired with passion by musicians
and imitated by violinists from all the world.
Her composing style is not limited to writing hit singles but also
encompasses works on a symphonic scale, which are performed at high profile
events of significant historic importance.
