Thursday, December 17, 2015, 18:01 GMT+7

A 13-year-old Vietnamese girl has claimed the first prize at a contest for young pianists in Russia this month.

Tran Dieu Linh was crowned the champion at the competition that took place from December 10 to 14.

The contest attracted 70 participants aged under 18.

Linh, who was born and raised in Moscow, started learning to play the piano at the age of five.

The girl came first in the entrance exam to the Russian University of Theater Arts when she was only seven.

In 2010, she cleared the entrance exam to Moscow Gressin Academy of Music, one of Russia’s most famous musical schools.

The 13-year-old pianist is well known for her excellent playing of musical pieces with an unbelievable fast rhythm compared to other youngsters at her age.

Linh performed in Vietnam for the first time in 2012, then was invited to take part in “Giai Dieu Mua Thu” (The Melody of Autumn), a national artistic festival, in 2013 along with her sister Tran Dieu An.

The two young talents also joined the second international piano festival, held the same year in Ho Chi Minh City.

They have shared seven years of performing classical musical pieces together in many countries around the world, and received over 30 awards in Russia and Europe.
