Excerpt from (22/2/2020):

“We were privileged to have 18 year old Noa Wildschut from the Netherlands give us her awe inspiring interpretation. Young may she be, but Noa Wildschut is a rising star if ever there was one.”

Excerpt from The Scotsman (23/2/2020):

“Dutch violinist Noa Wildschut, in her RSNO debut, brought refreshing insight, electrifying precision and melting expressive tone to Bruch’s Violin Concerto. A warhorse with a welcome makeover.”

Excerpt from Seen and Heard International (22/2/2020):

“It wasn’t long before the Dutch eighteen-year-old Noa Wildschut showed why many consider her as one of the great violinists of the future. Wildschut plays on a 1714 Giovanni Grancino violin given to her by the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation. Her playing was beautifully lyrical, and the slowly emerging romantic theme was voiced by her luminous and intense playing, sensitively accompanied by Chan and her musicians. Wildschut has a gorgeous tone, which suits her admirably in this romantic concerto, and she exhibited extraordinarily fine technique, without indulging in excessive sentimentality. In the vigorous finale, Chan masterminded a storm of lustrous brilliance, drawing glorious playing from the soloist and orchestra, before the huge accelerando and the exciting climax. As an encore, Wildschut played the Andante from the Violin Sonata No.2 in A minor BWV 1003 by JS Bach. Based on this performance, I suspect Wildschut will be returning to Scotland in the very near future.”
