'The appearance of the British violinist Leia Zhu, who has Chinese roots, is almost even more spectacular. She is not even thirteen years old: a "child prodigy", as announced in the program.
With Niccolò Paganini's "Cantabile" intones melt and sweetness, with smooth transitions between high register and sonorous depth.
Of course, one was particularly excited beforehand to see how Leia Zhu performed the solo part of "La Campanella", Paganini's virtuoso bell rondo. Here nothing was left to be desired: like a savvy professional If the young violinist is up to Paganini's witchcraft, she leaves the bow light at a crazy pace. Dance across the strings and amazes with rapid changes between bowed and pizzicato notes.' - Osterhofener Anzeiger
