What is your earliest childhood memory?
When I was 5 years-old, I took my first music school entrance exam. I sang a soviet, quite communist, song with a serious face. From a current perspective it looks funny, but was normal at the time. It was a piano exam and I passed.

What’s the love of your life?
Piano and music?
When were you happiest

If you could have dinner with three people, dead or alive, who would they be
