#Quote
1I have memories of when I was about two of listening to music and I felt embodied by it ... I felt connected, totally, with it ... music is my addiction. My obsession. More that that, music offers me - and I think a lot of people - a connection with who we are and what we are, albeit in a very abstract way.
2It is hard to play the violin, it is one of the hardest things you can do... It's like learning a Chinese dialect.
3"I compose a little, in the modern genre".
4[on the fact the Australian Chamber Orchestra always stands to perform] "It's better for us to stand for a start. You get more life out of the musicians if they are standing, they play more like soloists."
