Hong Kong's Sophia Chan, 12, has released her first album, titled The Violin Angel, on the Poloarts label. It records her performance at Festival de Musica de Santa Catarina, with the festival orchestra under the baton of Alex Klein in Brazil, in January 2011.

The record features Edouard Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole, Chinese composer He Fang's violin concerto Jasmine Flower and other pieces.

Chan started to play the violin at 4 and quickly displayed her tremendous talent on many TV shows. Now she studies with the world's top violinist, Shmuel Ashkenasi, and Michael Ma, professor of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
