Favorite composer fact: Shostakovich was a perfectionist not only in music, but in his personal life. According to his daughter, he was “obsessed with cleanliness;” he synchronized the clocks in his apartment, and he would regularly send cards to himself to test how well the postal service was working.
Favorite fact about your instrument: It was manufactured in my favorite city: Paris, France.
Last book read: Assimil: New French with Ease
Piece of advice for a young classical musician:
If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.
Time travel destination: The 1920s because of Tin Pan Alley, George and Ira Gershwin, and their influential role in American jazz music.
