If you had to only listen to 2 albums for the rest of your life, what albums would you choose?

If I had to listen to two albums for the rest of my life it would be Glenn Gould ones: the 1971 Recording of the Goldberg variations, and The Leonard Bernstein/Glenn Gould live radio recording of the NY Philharmonic concert of April 1962. Call me a nerd but there is such a cool controversial story behind this album. I recommend looking into it!

What artist would you most want to collaborate with?

Itzhak Perlman

Last great concert you saw?

James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong

What is your favourite piece of musical equipment?

The una corda pedal! There is so much colour changes possible with this.

What is your most memorable musical experience?

Playing harpsichord in the Early Music Studio during my masters!

What do you love most about music?

I love getting to work on a piece for the second time, because it is a true indication of how there is no single right way to do something in music! There are so many things that go into the decisions we make while working on a piece of music, and its cool to see a different result from yourself, with the only change being your age. 

What would you say to someone who is interested in studying music?

I would say to try to stay in touch with what your personal goals are, whether that be something that is inspiring, motivating, or exhilarating…know what your reasons are for loving music and remind yourself of that every chance you can.

What do you like to do when you are not playing music?

I loooove quality time with the people that i love and i love doing yoga! Mindfulness is awesome!

What is your favourite film of all time?

The Wizard of Oz

What part of the world would you like to travel to most?

Vienna, Eastern Europe, Egypt, Greece… (I wanna travel a lot)
