Soprano

Julia Saifulmulyukova

In the choir since 2018

DO YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC AT HOME?
Of course. This includes both popular music (Rammstein, Die Antwoord, Morphine, Nirvana) and academic works by Arvo Pärt, Richard Wagner or, say, Michael Nyman.
COULD YOU NAME A COUPLE OF YOUR FAVOURITE MUSICAL PIECES?
My favourite ones certainly belong to the realm of classical music. I would name Berg’s “Wozzeck” opera and Mozart’s Requiem.
PLEASE DESCRIBE YOUR TYPICAL DAY BEFORE A CONCERT.
On the day of the performance, it is crucial to sleep well and, of course, to warm up. Before the very start of the concert, I always make a point to address God. It feels like I surrender myself to fate and get ready for whatever comes next.
DOES SOMETHING ABOUT YOU CHANGE WHEN YOU GO UP ON STAGE?
Definitely! I seemingly forget about anything else in life. If it is beyond the stage, it is no longer significant; my mind disengages from any problems or everyday chores.
