Claudia Zorbas, 15, astounded audiences on Tuesday at the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation as she played pieces from Mozart, Mendelssohn, Sarasate and more. Zorbas is used to "astounding" audiences with a remarkable talent far beyond her young years.

She won the national Zathureczky violin competition in Hungary at the age of 11. Since then, she has won numerous awards and played in countries such as Australia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Austria and the UK.

The talented young violinist is studying with world-acclaimed musicians. Her mentor and teacher, Professor Eszter Perenyi, has described her as having excellent technical ability and always giving an "exceptionally artistic performance". Zorbas's performance was part of the ongoing 4th Abu Dhabi Classical Music Festival.
