Five year old Akim Camara playing Felix Mendelssohn's 'Dance of the Fairies' with André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra.
In 2004 - when Akim was only 3 years old - he already performed Ferdinand Kuchler's violin concertino in G, opus 11 with André in the Netherlands. Followed by a brief encore performance. Akim exited stage right after two massive standing ovations.
With his uncanny ability to memorize a musical piece after hearing it only once or twice, Akim's talent developed rapidly and his youthful enthusiasm and passion for the violin only grew.
This time Akim was performing a more complex piece, Dance of the Fairies, at New York City's Radio City Music Hall with an appropriately bigger violin. He also sang "Pie Jesu" with Carla Maffioletti.
The clip is taken from the DVD André Rieu Live in New York City.
