Most memorable performance with the ESO

All of the performances in the future! But I do remember playing the first movement of the Sibelius violin concerto with the orchestra in 1998. That was thrilling and memorable!  

Favorite ESO soloist

Don’t know yet (since I just started).

Why I like playing with the ESO

They are a sensitive group of musicians with a great conductor, who truly enjoy making music together.

Favorite composer or piece

Anything Brahms. In addition to listening to orchestral music, I love listening to piano music, Schubert, Schumann and Bach especially. When I listen to Glenn Gould, my emotions are freed and I cry. Not only do I feel like I’m in the room with him, but I feel like the composer is there too.

When I’m not playing with the ESO, I’m…

Practicing and teaching the violin, answering emails, taking walks and making jewelry.

Something most people don’t know about me

I started playing the violin when I was 2, and have been teaching since I was 10. My first student is now a professional musician.
