The globally popular violinist Vanessa Mae will perform on October 10 at the Sava Centar, accompanied by a chamber orchestra, as part of the 51st BEMUS.
As a teenager, Vanessa Mae achieved fame with an original blend of classical and popular music. After dozens of albums sold in millions of copies and triumphant performances around the world, she is recognized as a pioneer of the crossover between classical and popular music.
Born in Singapore to a Thai father and a Chinese mother, she was adopted by a British family when she was young. She immediately developed her talent for music at the Beijing Music Conservatory and the Royal College of Music in London. At just ten, she had a sensational debut at the Schleswig-Holstein Festival in 1988, and in the same year, she played in the UK with the Philharmonic Orchestra.

At just thirteen, according to the Guinness Book of Records, she became the youngest female soloist to record violin concerts by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky.
Her first pop album, “The Violin Player”, released in 1995, has sold over 8 million copies so far and made her a world-renowned violinist at just 16 years old.
Vanessa Mae has participated in numerous film projects including the Disney cartoon “Mulan” and Oliver Stone’s film “Alexander” (which soundtrack includes a composition made for Vanessa by Vangelis).
To date, she has sold more than 10 million albums and won more than 40 international awards for pop and classical music. Her music has reached over 100 countries.
