Let me know with time, and I will always try my best to be flexible and approach the situation the best I can.

Yes, and also feel free to discuss personal requests with me.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I bring my instrument to play acoustically.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
With the right amount of time, yes.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I would say the most relevant feedback I get is that my performances are always very unique.

Casa da Música, Coliseu, Palácio de Cristal (Porto, Portugal), Centro Cultural de Belém (Lisbon, Portugal), Fundação Cupertino Miranda (Vila Nova de Famalicão, Portugal), Fundação Castro Alves (Vila das Aves, Portugal), among other.

Jacqueline du Pré and Mstislav Rostropovich are definitely my biggest inspiration, although I also feel very inspired from listening to Steven Isserlis and Alisa Weilerstein, among others.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Most projects I work on are big orchestra ones or smaller ones in smaller stages, so I can't really say which one was the most high profile.
