She is a fervent defender of contemporary music and supporter of young international composers. « I have chosen music as my profession because, from my point of view, art and culture is one of the treasures of our societies. Music is really an international language and helps to develop communicative, sensitive and cognitive skills among others. It is a great ‘tool’ to interact with people and develop compassion. Music helps us to express the inexpressible.
