What would you be doing if you hadn’t become a musician?

I can’t remember ever not wanting to be a musician. But if I had to choose something else, it would be a restorer. I would be the person with the tiny brushes, trying to get the colours of a historical building or painting just right, millimetre by millimetre.

Is there an instrument other than your own that you would like to master?

I wish I could play guitar and sing rock classics.

Which favourite place in Berlin do you recommend when you have visitors?

I always take my guests to Gendarmenmarkt. The concert hall is the reason I’m here. When I show them the overwhelming beauty of the square and the splendour of the hall, I become quite humble, grateful and so happy that I can play there. So it’s no mystery why I chose to live here – so far away from home.
