Lera Auerbach was born in Chelyabinsk in western Siberia and her music and fine art creativity were recognized at the age of just four. In other words, she was the classical wunderkind. At the age of 18 she travelled to the United States to continue her music studies. She attended classes on piano and composition with teachers of the Manhattan School of Music and, for instance, Milton Babbitt. She debuted in Carnegie Hall with a performance of her own work, the Suite for violin, piano and orchestra, with Gidon Kremer and Kremerata Baltica as her partners. To this day Lera Auerbach gives concerts as a pianist, as a composer she is in close contact with famous orchestras and institutions of music, and her ballets and operas have been performed by the Danish National Ballet, Theater an der Wien and New York Lincoln Center. The world premiere of 72 Angels for chorus and saxophone quartet, drawing its inspiration from the mysticism of the Kabbalah, was held in Amsterdam in November 2016.
