On October 5, the Herodeon will fill with devotees of the “Queen of the electric violin”, Vanessa Mae, who, with her orchestra and team of talented technicians, will also electrify the audience with a stunning show of sound and light.
The multidimensional personality of this dynamic violinist
The beautiful Mae (born to a Singaporean mother and Thai father and who was then adopted by a British father) has sold millions of albums and was listed as the wealthiest artist under thirty in the United Kingdom in 2006. At the age of 13, she became the youngest solo violinist to record both the Beethoven and Tchaikovsky violin concertos. She also skied for Thailand in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Finally, to round out her rather extraordinary profile, Mae is active in numerous philanthropic causes, having performed many times on behalf of the International Red Cross.
The musical selections
Mae combines classical and pop music in an intimate and “easy” sound and manages to appeal to a broad audience – as demonstrated by her 40 international Platinum Awards and her sale of more than 8 million albums from both her classical and pop repertoires. On the night of October 5, Mae’s audience can expect to enjoy Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Vivaldi, Indian music, pop songs and compositions by Vangelis Papathanasiou. Tickets are available at ticketservices.gr and at Public stores.
