MELTDOWN: Amadéus Leopold
Leopold – previously known as Hahn-Bin – isn't your average classical violinist. At only 25, he's worked with Madonna and the Scissor Sisters, appeared on a fashion magazine cover and played the Latitude rock festival. He performs in outlandish make-up and costume, and last year caused a stir in New York by staging a provocative and queer theory-informed performance of Tchaikovsy's violin concerto. He's essentially the Klaus Nomi of the violin, then – and he's got the prodigious talent to back up his unorthodox style.
