While she has favourites in every genre, it’s probably Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 that falls closest to her heart. That piece embraces the composer’s heart and soul.
Aside music, she takes interest in other arts such as drawing and painting. Her works depict a world of fantasy. She loves to go hiking with her family during the few free weekends she has in a year. It’s the mountains and woods where she can truly recharge.
‘It is a great pleasure for me to play in an orchestra where on top of a high professional level we also have humanity and cohesion. We are friends, not just colleagues. We have plenty of concerts which may be exhausting, but we get to learn and play numerous works. My wishes for the 25th anniversary? (2018 – the ed.) Many joyful concerts, on and off stage.’
