Introduction to Alma Deutscher, Young British Composer

Alma Deutscher, Young British Composer

Stone Soup Magazine
November/December 2016

British Composer, Alma Deutscher (born 2005) is one of the many young composers who are invariably compared by TV interviewers  with Mozart, the composer who lived a couple hundred years ago. This comparison is more because few people know about how many fabulous young composers there have been. Alma offers a strong defense of herself — listen to me — she says — don’t compare. In addition to composing, Alma plays the piano and violin.

As of this writing, Summer 2016, Alma Deutscher is still very active. Her work is exciting and ought to inspire anyone who listens to her music, regardless of age.

About the Author

In 1973, I was twenty years old, teaching children's art classes at my college, the University of California, Santa Cruz, and came up with the idea that the best way to encourage children to write was to introduce them to the best writing by their peers. Stone Soup grew out of that idea. Along with co-editor Gerry Mandel, I have continued to edit and publish Stone Soup for all these years. I am also a culinary historian. I write about traditional foodways. My book, "The Magic of Fire," is about hearth cooking. My book, "Bread, a global history," speaks for itself. I am currently writing a 130,000-word bread history for a University Press. I publish articles on gardening and traditional foodways at Mother Earth News. I also publish on wild mushrooms and other food-related subjects.
