Is there anything you would like to tell us about the individual instrument you play?

I play an old Italian violin that had been lying around forgotten in a West German monastery for a long time. A former East Berlin violinist who had fled from the GDR discovered it there. When he returned to his old home in retirement, I was able to purchase it from him.

Which composer particularly inspires you?

I love the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. It enables us as violinists to play polyphonically on our own.

Which CD would you take to a desert island?

I would definitely take Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” and the “St. Matthew Passion” with me to a desert island.

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

I would like to master my voice so that I could sing opera performances all over the world.
