What is the best thing about playing the violin?

The best thing about playing the violin is that, somehow, you’re always able to be the main voice.

If you could ask any composer one question, who would you pick and what would you ask him/her?

I think I would pick Gustav Mahler and I would ask him about his muse, Alma Mahler, and how it felt to be married to her.

What is your guilty pleasure that you only listen to in secret?


If you had a super power, what would it be?

I would like to have the power to read people's minds.

What has been your best AMK moment so far?

It’s hard to pick only one moment, but I would say even the simplest moments are amazing. Like, for example, sitting at a table and eating all together.

Describe AMK in three words.

Joy, friendship, passion.
