What do you like to do when you are not playing music?
At what age did you start playing your instrument?
When I was 6 years old.
What was the most exciting concert you ever performed?
I was on EUYO’s South America Tour in 2018, during which we played concerts in the largest and most beautiful halls of Sao Paolo, Buenos Aires and Montevideo. These concert experiences were very special, as they were full of the energy and enthusiasm of all the musicians. I remember that we were able to take the wonderful acoustics of the Centro Cultural Kirchner in Buenos Aires to the extreme by playing exceedingly quiet to very loud dynamics. Those were goosebump moments that carried everyone away.
What was the most awkward moment in your career?
For a recital a few years ago, I wore a new dress that was a bit too long for me, since I unfortunately hadn’t had time yet to let it be shortened. During a spirited moment while playing, I took one step closer to the piano, during which my high-heeled shoe got caught in the hem of the dress and made me almost lose my balance. Luckily I could catch myself quickly, but it was definitely an embarrassing scary moment (from which I learned).
What is your favourite piece of classical music?
No single piece stands out as my favouritework since there is so much wonderful music.
How did the last two Corona years influence your musical development?
They taught me that there are also other concert formats off the beaten track, alternatives to the usual concert or opera, to which one should be open.
Which famous person would you like to have dinner with (from the past or the present)?
With Itzhak Perlman, as I am sure he has a lot of funny anecdotes from his numerous journeys to tell.
