RIYADH — Saudi Arabia recently organized an outstanding show at King Fahd Cultural Center theater where it kicked off with a performance by Saudi pianist Eman Gusti and ended the event with the world’s youngest violinist, Chloe Chua from Singapore.

Al-Arabiya English spoke with the self-taught pianist and art enthusiast who spoke of her love for music and what it went to perform at the concert.

“The cultural authority has played a big role in enhancing my hobby. I started playing when I was five under my mother’s training until I was able to control my own path,” the young Saudi pianist said.

Gusti is also set to perform at Dar Al-Hekma University in Jeddah after the success of her first performance in Riyadh. “I am still a college student majoring in English literature. I would love to prove my worth in the artistic field and hopefully perform worldwide,” she said.

Chloe Chua earned a standing ovation after her violin performance with guest star Gordon Back as he played the piano and were able to stimulate the crowd with their beautiful heart-felt masterpieces.

She managed to receive the first prize at the worldwide Menuhin Competition in Geneva award for violinists under the age of 22. — Al-Arabiya English
