“I was always very interested in music, I don’t know where it came from. I was never forced into it. Before I even had an actual violin I would practice with two pens. My parents never played instruments but growing up we didn’t have a television, so there was always music in my house. I guess you could say it was my first big interest. What I love about music is that it’s always been a constant in my life. When I moved from Hungary to Sweden I got a proper violin teacher. Even though I didn’t speak any Swedish at the time the lessons worked somehow. I continued playing and I got into this orchestra that went to Germany which was super cool. I think playing in an orchestra is really beautiful because it is a way of performing in a group, rather then alone and completely exposed.”
