Music I like

 

 

My favourite musical genres

Having been classically trained I have a penchant for classical music, in all its varieties, from Baroque to Romantic music, from orchestral pieces to piano compositions. I’m an avid listener of music, as I am plugged to my music collection on my Iphone for hours every day. In addition to classical music I also extend my listening library to a very eclectic array of music, ranging from jazz to ambient, from rock to world music. As also for other lifestyle aspects, I am musically curious and love discovering new sounds to add to my favourite soundtrack list.

Chopin

My favourite composers

There are many composers I like best, among them Mozart, Vivaldi and Debussy, but Chopin is by far the composer I feel closer to, for musical sensibility and artistic expression. I loved studying and playing his compositions and I enjoy listening to my collection of his compositions interpreted by many great pianists, from Martha Argerich to Arthurย Rubinstein, from Maurizio Pollini to Ivo Pogorelich. Piano solo Nocturnes and Preludes are surely amongst my most favourites but I also love his concerts and chamber music.

Apart from his unique contribution to music, it is also intriguing to immerse in the world that surrounded Chopin during his life in Paris and his relationships with other artists and intellectuals of his time, from George Sand to Delacroix and Liszt.

My favourite music venues

In London aย music-lover is spoilt with choice with many concert halls and venues to choose from: from the more intimate Wigmore Hall for chamber music to the newly renovated Royal Festival Hall or the Barbican for orchestral concerts, to the many churches that offer high quality concerts on a regular basis, like St Martin’s in the Field or St James Piccadilly. Not to mention the opportunity to participate in live recordings by the BBC for their professional music groups in many venues scattered around London or at the BBC Studios in Maida Vale.
During my stay in Berlin I have also appreciated the variety of music venues offered in the German capital for all kinds of music genres.
