Getting up in the morning and knowing I still love music as much as ever
I feel like a musician’s path is a combination of constant challenges and beautiful moments with music that make it all worth it
The live audience, and the energy that flows to the stage from the audience, creates moments of spontaneous musical choices, and magical moments that are impossible to fully describe in words
Everything flows into the music and performances. The way we lead our lives; taking care of our body, soul and spirit; trying not to neglect any part of my existence.
The greatest challenge is pursuing an artistic musical ideal while dealing with reality. The ideal of being on stage and sharing with people the world’s most beautiful music hides a multitude of other realities
I have faith that classical music will remain as a great inspiration for the future – particularly if you play music you really love and identify with
