The violinist Amalia Hall is one of the most exciting young New Zealand Classical Musicians around at the moment and is already forging an international career - when she's not leading Orchestra Wellington.

In the past month she's been performing in Uzbeckestan Capital of Tashkent, as well as Mexico.

She was back in Wellington over the weekend, as soloist with the orchestra - performing Bartok's violin concerto - one of the toughest in the business.

Before the gig, Amalia spoke with Eva Radich.
