  Leila Josefowicz Friday 18 January 2002  
Leila Josefowicz with Martha Kearney
Leila Josefowicz is a child prodigy who took up the violin when she was 3. She played in front of Ronald Regan at the age of 10 and made her Carnegie Hall debut at 16.

Now still only 24, she's one of the world's most acclaimed violinists. She's performing John Adams' violin concerto at the Barbican Centre on Sunday 20 January - to be conducted by Adams himself for the first time.
Leila talks to Martha about her plans for the future.
