In the orchestra since 2004

CAN YOU REMEMBER YOUR FIRST PERFORMANCE WITH MUSICAETERNA?
I remember my first rehearsal with the troupe very clearly. It was, in fact, an audition. They were auditioning seven of us — and truth be told, I was not quite sure where I was and what for. I was still a student back then, so I was not really planning to get a job at that time. After the audition, I was the only one remaining out of seven. That is how it all began.
WHAT DO YOU VALUE THE MOST IN YOUR WORK WITH MUSICAETERNA?
Sincerity, I guess. It is hard to tell as I have not worked in any other troupes; still, I do not think I could experience the same in a different orchestra. In fact, I have spent the greater part of my life with musicAeterna, so it really is part of me now.
WHAT ELSE CAN GIVE YOU EMOTIONS AS STRONG AS THOSE YOU GET FROM PERFORMING ON STAGE?
I do not think there is anything else like that in my life. The stage is what gives me the brightest emotions. Doing your absolute best at rehearsals, being extremely focused at performances, and completely relaxing after them — this is truly like nothing else.
WHAT ARE YOUR THREE “DESERT ISLAND” MUSICAL ALBUMS?
To be frank, I do not listen to music outside of work. My life is full of music as it is; after rehearsals and performances, all I want is silence. I would, however, bring a collection of Bach’s Suites to a desert island.
