What do you enjoy most about being an orchestral musician?

The most beautiful thing about my job is that I can play an (almost) infinite number of symphonies and listen to these pieces at the same time from my spot in the middle.

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

With good grades I would have become a lawyer, with normal ones, a dog trainer.

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

I would like to be able to play the French horn.

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

My favourite place in Berlin is the Grunewaldsee.
