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

Like many boys, I wanted to become a professional footballer. I probably wouldn’t have been good enough for that, so I would have taken up a medical profession.

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

Oh yes, I would like to be able to play the guitar so that I could perform jazz, rock or blues with a melodic instrument.

Which composer inspires you the most?

In the classical field, I’m a big fan of Baroque music, but also Romantic music. I love Johann Sebastian Bach and the works of Richard Wagner. Both wrote incredible music in their time.

Is there a musical or humanistic personality who has made a deep impression on you?

As a humanist, I particularly admire Nelson Mandela, and among modern musicians, Sting is one of the greats for me, along with many others!
