RENOWNED violinist Yi-Jia Susanne Hou performed using a €10m violin at the Inauguration of the Marbella Luxury Weekend. She also performed for the presentation of Guarnieri luxury car dealership’s new McLaren MP4-12C car which has a starting price of €158,500 (plus taxes and extras).
Hou is the first ever violinist in history to capture three Gold Medals with unanimous decisions at three International Violin Competitions.
At 17, Hou performed the most challenging pieces ever written for the violin: Paganini’s Twenty-four Caprices for Solo Violin, in live recitals in Toronto and Aspen.
Both her mother and father are violinists, and at the age of 4, Hou began studying violin with her father. Less than a year later, she gave her first public performance and was received with a standing ovation.
