This week, Charlotte’s Young Classical Star is the 18-year-old Swedish violinist, Johan Dalene.
Dalene began playing the violin at the age of four and made his professional concert debut three years later. He has won a number of competitions, including a top prize in the Junior Category of the Menuhin Competition, and was Student-In-Residence at Switzerland’s Verbier Festival in 2016.
This evening, Charlotte showcases Dalene’s musical ability beyond his years with his new recording of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, released earlier this month.
