Description

Henryk Wieniawski made his spectacular entrance onto the Parisian musical scene at the precocious age of eleven, competing for the first time in the Conservatory’s concours. Lambert Massart’s young student was unanimously awarded first prize with his brilliant performance of Giovanni Battista Viotti’s Concerto No. 17. The music critic Paul Smith considered the event “the most significant” and the “Most astonishing” of 1846, declaring that the child already played “like a master” and predicting that his future will be “as astonishing as the present”.show more
