Just arrived in Warsaw to play Walton Cello Concerto for the opening night of the Witold Lutoslawski Forum in the Warsaw Philharmonic Hall. Very happy to be playing Walton again. Last time I was here was 1989 as I passed through by train on my way from Moscow to Berlin having finished my studies in Moscow. It was only a few months before the wall came down.
If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.
