Vilken var din första konsert med Sinfoniettan?
It was in January 2019, with Christian Lindberg conducting. There was a trombone concerto, a Sinfonietta by Boccherini and « Tableaux d’une exposition » by Mussorgsky.

Just the fact that a sound comes out of it… applying the hair of the bow on a string under a specific tension at a precise point will make the string vibrate, transmit this vibration to piece of wood (the bridge), which in turn will transmit this vibration to the wooden box, but more particularly to a tiny piece of wood inside the instrument, called “soundpost “ in English (but I prefer the French word for that one, “âme”, which means “soul”). Without this tiny piece of wood situated inside the violin below the bridge and standing upright between the bottom and the top of the box, the instrument would not sound. What fascinates me is that all of this happens instantly and we take it for granted whereas so many people have thought about this system for centuries, to reach the perfect sound.

Vilken kompositör inspirerar dig mest?
