Dutch violinist Noa Wildschut is only 16 years old, but has already gained her place on the international classical music scene.
At the age of 6 she appeared live on Dutch television for the ‘Kinderprinsengrachtconcert 2007’ in Amsterdam, aged 7 she made her debut in the main hall of Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw at the ‘Night of the Promising’, and in September 2016 became an exclusive recording artist for Warner Classics.
Noa’s debut album release is an all-Mozart recording: the Violin Concerto No 5 and the Adagio K.261, for which she will be joined by the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra under the leadership of Gordan Nikolić, and the Violin Sonata in B flat major, K.454, with prizewinning pianist and festival director Yoram Ish-Hurwitz.
“Everywhere freedom, a naturalness, elegant and beautiful music making. A compelling discovery!”
– Le Soir
“A new color in the music world … a sparkling cd debut”
– Klassieke Zaken

A Family Quartet
Directed by Simonka de Jong, the documentary A Family Quartet is “an intimate portrait of a family that tries to function normally under special circumstances” (de Volkskrant).
De Jong followed Noa and her family for three years, leading up to Noa’s debut album with Warner Classics and her international breakthrough. From an early age, Noa and her sister Avigal shared a love for music. They were stimulated by their parents, both musicians, to always get the best out of themselves. A Family Quartet follows family life at home as Noa’s career begins to take flight. In intimate observations we experience the emotional links between family members, and how love, expectations and ambition all come together.
