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

As a young person, I only thought about this in passing, as the desire to become a violinist was too strong. Today I think about this question from time to time. I think I would certainly have ended up somewhere between art and medicine professionally.

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

Singing and the recorder. The recorder because you can literally hear the beauty of the wood (similar to a string instrument).

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

I have played my violin since I was 13 years old. It has been in my family for several generations. I still remember very clearly the moment when I was allowed to take my first bow stroke on it. Since then, its warm, dark sound has become very dear to me. After three short interludes on other violins, I returned to it many years ago.

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

My Konzerthaus every time!
