Waltz of Sirens

Updated: Nov 13, 2023

Popular in Austrian, German and French courtroom in 19th and early 20th centuries, waltz is counted as one of the most easy-listening genres of classical music. The form of its signature three-four time dancing basis is the lasting core element composers of centuries keep exploring and making use of even until nowadays.

Inspired by various siren sounds different from her native country, contemporary prodigy composer Alma Deutscher, at age of 15, composed Waltz of Sirens for orchestra. It’s brilliant to hear the imitation of sirens using strings and melodica, and pleasantly surprised by how the composer transforms the siren sounds into a smooth classical waltz.

Alma’s early opera work Cinderella (and performed by herself and her sister Helen)

Alma Deutscher, born in 2005 in the UK, is a talented pianist and violinist, and more importantly, a composing genius who composed her first pieces as early as aged 6. Some consider her a modern time Mozart. Her early works are not limited to seemingly simple-structured sonatas or etudes, but operas. We look forward to more innovative and beautiful works from her in the future.
