Which concert with the Konzerthausorchester was a special emotional experience for you?

One of my personal musical highlights was the performance of Beethoven’s 4th and 7th Symphonies with Iván Fischer, then our principal conductor. The concert was the crowning finale of the twelve-hour Beethoven Marathon in 2012.

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

One of my favourite places in Berlin is Little Venice in Spandau. It’s beautiful there, especially in summer. Although this nature reserve, which is criss-crossed by canals, is only an hour’s cycle ride from Berlin-Mitte, you have the feeling of being in a completely different world.

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

The French Horn
