Born in Munich in 1999, Viviana-Zarah started playing children’s songs on the piano at the age of 2 and soon became enthusiastic about the violin as well. She played her first piano concert at the age of 5 and won 1st prizes at national and international competitions at a young age. At the age of 13, Viviana-Zarah was selected by Lang Lang to be among the best young artists from all over the world for his 30th birthday concert at the O2 Arena in Berlin.
