She dazzled the Salzburg Whitsun Festival audience in 1977 when Maestro Herbert von Karajan introduced his discovery to the world. How could a wisp of a girl play with such maturity and sophistication? She was but a 13-year old kid from Munich. The critics, though impressed, had their reservations - dismissive of yet another Karajan child prodigy, unwilling to rule out the predictable premature burn-out.

Did they eat crow? You betcha!

from wisp of a girl to glamourous virtuoso

Under Karajan's careful tutelage, she learned and perfected her craft, mastered the Masters, and spun off recordings of the great violin pieces that have won awards and distinctions. And as she shed off the baby fat, she metamorphosed into a glamorous virtuoso who made a statement - with her music of course, but also with her trademark strapless gown. Her audience never ceased to be mystified by her art. Yet doubts persisted in elitist, critical minds for, as convention goes, glamor-girl chic, especially in music, is incongruous with high art.

Did they eat crow (again)? You betcha!
