MY LOVE & INSPIRATION
I have been playing a violin by
Christoph Götting made in 1999 ever since
that time and every day I could fall anew
in love with this instrument. I have relied on it in so
many concerts, sometimes in greatly varying
playing conditions. The evenness of its sound
from the lowest to the highest frequencies,
its “presence” as well as the possibilities of
modulation it gives me during chamber music
and in the orchestral terrain are what I cherish.
The violin is perfectly made and has a
near magical varnish which sparkles, glistens
and reveals wonderful reflections.
Every day I am fascinated by this
and it inspires me.

ENJOY & FEEL MUSIC
SHARE WITH MUSICANS
Never stop following your dreams.
Quite a few years ago, I started working at Neojiba in Salvador da Bahia. I met wonderful, young musicians and people, who were putting a lot of energy and passion into building Neojiba. I often think of my work in countless masterclasses and of many rehearsals with the different orchestras in this institution, especially with the young symphony orchestra on the second of July. On this homepage, you are able to watch excerpts of the last DVD recording, which is an impressive documentation of my work with the musicians. I would like to thank the initiator of this project Ricardo Castro - a truly great musician and colleague!
