“I've always been very interested in the world of keyboard instruments. I find that instruments from other eras are a sort of time machine that allows you to travel to the moment when composers were writing, letting you identify even more with what you play."

After dealing with the theme of chamber music, let’s go back to my instrument, the piano. We will talk above all about two special pianos for me, mine! I am a Steinway B, my study partner, and an Erard bass guitar from 1844, of which I am particularly proud and which allows me to hear that particular sound that Chopin, Liszt, and the many other composers of the time heard. But we will also talk about when I indulged my passion for the harpsichord, and even about my first (and only) organ concert!
