Violin / Voice

Chamber music has always been my passion. In the beginning of any ensemble you need time to get used to each other, learning others' musical background and feelings, but mostly the personalities. Playing together is to become a friend. You have to be comfortable with each other enough to dare and expand your music. I think "playing" brought me together with some people that are normally not my type of friends, and those people have cracked me up and surprised me the most in playing.

When we begin to play a piece on the stage, starts an other magic reality. Chamber music gives me the special opportunity to feel what does it means to sincerely trust and rely on each other. To care about even a little breath of the other player, feeling together as one soul. If you once got the chance to feel this special energy, you never want to stop playing chamber music.

I remember my first day of school at the Conservatory, when a student asked me to become part of a string quartet….this was the beginning of more than 4 years of playing together. This is where my passion for chamber music started. After this first experience, I worked together with musicians from other countries, who approach music in a different way or with a different view. This brought me new ideas, broadened my understanding, and gave me new inspiration.
