From 2001 to 2003 she was a scholarship holder of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra Academy. In 2001 she won the ARD International Music Competition for violin.

Thomas Hoppe

For many years a congenial partner at the piano for artists such as Itzak Perlmann, Vilde Frang, Tabea Zimmermann and many others.

L.v.Beethoven - Sonata No.2 A major op.12/2

Beethoven's first three violin sonatas were dedicated to Antonio Salieri, with whom he himself had studied in Vienna. The Sonata No. 2 in A major is distinguished by its cheerful, almost charming character. A highly exciting, often amusing dialog between piano and violin at every moment.

E.Ysaÿe - Poème élégiaque op.12

Inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Eugène Ysaÿe - himself a violinist - composed this 1-movement work in 1896 as the most famous of his series of "Poèmes pour instruments à cordes et orchestre". It is a special work not only because of the lower G-string.

W.A.Mozart - Sonata A major KV526
"Mozart's most important piano-violin sonata" (quote from Albert Einstein) was written under the impression of the death of Leopold Mozart, his father. Despite this, the sonata begins in a tempestuous and exuberant mood and again turns into a highly artistic exchange of blows between the two instruments at the end.

M.Weinberg - Moldavian Rhapsody

Over the last ten years, a veritable Mieczysław Weinberg renaissance has taken place in concert halls around the world. In his Moldavian Rhapsody, he combines folk songs and klezmer from his parents' homeland.
