Who or what inspired you to pursue a career in music and who or what have been the most important influences on your musical life
I try to keep things as varied as possible (for my own sake). It’s very important to me to present programmes that make sense as a whole, with some kind of logic, and which provide continuity to the listener. I mostly pick works that I feel very strongly about when it comes to performing: there are many works I love that do not love me back!
I think about my audience first. Improvisation is a challenging genre and for that reason, it can come across as non-inclusive from the audience’s perspective.
Success as a musician is experiencing failure, learning from it and still having the passion for what you do.
It’s about creating something that is wonderful and engaging.
Music keeps me sane and strong. Without it, I feel non-existent. – Interview with Pianist Nada
