【After PMF 2022】What are some impressions of your time in Sapporo?
This is my very first time in Sapporo, a place I had been wanting to visit for so long. The scenery, culture and food are what I have always yearned for. I can still remember the moment when I stepped off the plane. I was amazed at the amount of restaurants that were still open in the early hours of the morning, and that it has such a rich Japanese culture while perfectly integrating with many other foreign ones. I could also clearly sense how much classical music has played a crucial role in the city.
【After PMF 2022】What did you take away from your time at PMF?
My love and passion are to make music with musicians from all over the world, whether it is in the form of orchestra or chamber groups, to create wonderful and powerful music together as one unit. PMF is the perfect place for me to realize those wishes. I was able to collaborate, engage, and trust as a member of the orchestra thanks to everyone's strong musicianship and maturity. Although coming from different cultures and backgrounds with different characters and ideology, we played and felt the music together striving to provide something that was beyond ourselves, beyond everything else, to the audience.
【After PMF 2022】What advice would you give to people thinking of auditioning for PMF?
PMF is a place where you would meet many young and talented players, as well as leading artists in the classical music world. If you feel intimidated at first, be sure to focus on your goal coming to this festival. It is not about proving yourself to anyone, it is not about competition, it is about your personal growth. Always be prepared, be respectful, and be open minded. At the same time, try to enjoy this beautiful city and this wonderful opportunity of making great music.
