How do you feel yourself nowadays?
Fine, thank you. I have a job and I have a goal. If I don’t have these then I feel bad. It is even more important for me to have a goal than a job, because if I have a goal, then I also have a job.
What is your goal?
My goal is always a new concert and a new repertoire. Everything else comes with this, for example with who I work, where I work, how I work, what is going to be the order, what is going to be the scenery, … This is the most enjoyable time of the preparation. Of course, it is stressful, because the decisions have to be carefully made in order to have a good repertoire. But fortunately, I am surrounded with good people, and I have a happy family background. I get help and support to do my job.
What are you doing now?
In addition to the performances in the summer, there is going to be a special concert called “Tango Classic” in Vigadó, where I will perform my favorite music: Astor Piazzolla “Four Seasons of Buenos Aires”. In addition to this, there is going to be foreign and Hungarian classical tango with the accompaniment of the Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra. The concert will have an Argentine atmosphere. It’s very exciting, because I’ve never made a tango night before. There is a huge demand for this genre, there are many people who dance Argentinian tango at home too. I recommend this concert to everyone who loves this world or who wants to know this world.
You are an extremely versatile artist: you are playing violin and theremin, you are also singing and tap dancing at your performances. Where did the dance come from?
When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a ballerina. My father played violin in the Opera, and he saw how injurious this is, so my parents did not let me do this. It really hurt, I always felt that I could have been successful.After all, that’s why I started to tap dance at college, but later I learnt classical and modern ballet and later I did jazz dancing…This former hobby is now part of my concerts. For example, I’m currently attending an Argentine tango class with a private teacher for my upcoming tango night. My aim is not to perform with it, but to try it out. I would like to experience how is to dance for the music that I play.Now I understand why there are so many people who dance tango, as their body is floating with music and there is also a very nice male-female connection. The man leads, the woman allows it, but she does not go into a subordinate role. For me, tango is a miracle, you become one with the music! The two dancers are interweaved and they have to adapt constantly to this position. The woman has to learn to become one with her partner even if her eyes are closed. This trust is a touching experience … However, tango is an improvisational genre.
