I am inspired by large, complex and mythical works where I can feel conversations-supportive or contradicting- between voices, hands and the rest of my body and mind. It started with Bach and Beethoven and gradually reached Schoenberg, Messaien, Wolpe and many others.
Bach and Britten….share a commitment to the words that they set and build it into the very fabric of the music. It is always a pleasure to understand and learn their works and then to share that story with the audience.
Fresh ideas that challenge the status quo quite often end up leaving important legacies.
Delve deep into your heart to find your true passion – then dedicate everything you have to it.
Representing the music from the underprivileged cultures. Although I am aware this is a very challenging task, I believe that the power of music can have a great impact on people’s thoughts and ideas.
From a personal point of view, through my work with quietnote, I try to teach the value of just listening to a piece of music. That means giving the music your complete attention, not whilst driving, cooking, or on your phone – simply sat listening.
