‘I hope the future has many concerts of many different types in store. I want to get out and play – use my education and do what I can to spread classical music. I will try to come up with new ideas about the classical concert form, without compromising the music, and especially in the ensemble Lydenskab I am attempted to get music out to those who do not normally come to the concert hall.
