First childhood memory related to music: Once my mother played the Piano at home and I joined her using some kitchen equipment as drums.

Favourite song at the moment: November by Max Richter

A rather embarrassing song you like: Pokerface by Lady Gaga – I hear it in my car max volume (although I love her! She is not embarrassing because she great)

Favourite song among your own: Timelapse

Favourite songlyrics: I am bad with lyrics I am only good with melodies.

Best concert: Opening of Montreux Festival playing with Max Richter, and later listening to Nicolas Jaar.

Worst concert: Blu Man Group – I was very disappointed .. my own worst concert experience I think was in Belgium where I was invited to do a Brahms Sextett and I prepared the wrong piece! At the same day the concert took place they told me I was supposed to play a different piece, and already did the rehearsals with the wrong one – But I learned it quickley! Still, that was a catastrophe!

Best concert among your own: Hollywood Bowl with LA Phil because of the nice atmosphere and the legendary venue.

Vinyl, cd or mp3? Vinyl bcs it is so cool but as I am so much on the road I often listen to mp3.

Download or stream? Stream. I am Scandinavian we have been streaming since forever.

Club concert or festival? Club concert

Three songs that really have to be on your mixtape: recomposed by Max Richter, anything from Nicolas Jaar, Chaconne by Bach

An album you would NOT take with you to a lonely island: Donau Waltzer
