Judith Aller

An American Violin Virtuoso



  • Niccolo Paganini: Sonata in A Major (encore)


  • Archangel! Folies D Espagne / Variations On A Theme Of Corelli


  • DEBUSSY STRING QUARTET: 1st and 2nd movement
  • Jascha Heifetz

    “She’s the last of the great 19th Century violinists.”

    Helsinki Newspaper

    “…One of the qualities of her playing is her exquistely beautiful cantilena, comparable to the tone of Jacques Thibaud…”

    The Times, London

    “…forthright and bold… she shaped the passionate lyricism of Schumann’s Sonata in A minor with assurance and sympathy.”

    Amsterdam newspaper

    “It is as if Judith Aller were a kindred soul of Mendelssohn.”

    Varna newspaper

    “The artist’s grasp stayed smoothly rich, rhythmically elastic, exultingly temperamental.”

    The Los Angeles Times

    “The birds in Judith Aller’s ‘Spring’ chirped boisterously, suggesting a romantic approach to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons…”

    Gregor Piatigorsky

    “Her playing breaks your heart open and makes you remember you have a heart and soul.”

    Warsaw-Poland

    “Wieniawski’s Concerto in F sharp is one of the most beauitful pieces for violin, and Judith Aller extracted from it everything essential.”

    Malmoe-Sweden

    “The soloist’s violin sang in a manner that could be characterized as an agreement of delicate senses, bringing to the audience a presence of something noble.”

    Swedish press– Helsinki

    “The climax of the concert was Schubert’s Sonatina in g minor, which Judith Aller played with keen insight into the naive and romantic character of the work.”

    Studs Terkel

    “She plays with a big tone and an abundance of feeling as you’ll hear on her CD Archangel!… she doesn’t play with a wimpy, wispy tone like all these wunderkinder do.”

    Pori–Finland

    “…The soloist Judith Aller gave a brilliant example of her virtuoso violin playing and of her temperment… it was startling to hear those high tones and the execution of the difficult technical passages in Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto in g minor… ”

    Houston, Texas

    “The fiery energy and great rubatos came forth from a colossally great and warm heart.”

    Why does the world need Judith Aller’s music?

    First of all, there’s no doubt, in this cool world music is needed more than ever, as to my mind music fortifies and connects people. Now why does the world need Judith’s music?

    Because her playing touches her listeners deep in their souls. It’s full of rhythm, full of blues, full of life, ! It’s wonderful music, wonderfully played with incredible virtuosity. She plays healing tunes. How I love them, again and again. These tunes are passionate and modern, deep but strong. They let us feel a deep relation to the essence of being. What can we ask more? Judith’s music fortifies and connects and gives us hope, that the world is going to be a
    better place.

    In a career that began when she was 4, the daughter of Victor Aller who was then head of Warner Brothers Studio music department, Judith Aller has had a remarkable career spanning over five decades. She has played for tv audiences, in concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, and yet also excels in an intimate salon setting.

    Aller is classically trained, the prodigy of Jascha Heifetz , and in her commercial success has also recorded with Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand, Liza Minnelli, and Luciano Pavarotti. She has toured and performed with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Helsinki Radio Symphony, with Helmut Rilling and Okko Kamu. Sought for her chamber sound as well, Aller performs with her quartet and as part of larger groups for special events. Her passion also includes small salon settings for pieces such as this Debussy Quartet http://bit.ly/1fNbOg6

    A resident of Los Angeles, she has also worked with school audiences helping children develop an appreciation and love for classical music.
