ls it a typical summer for you?The only typical thing about this summer is the fact that we arebusy from May to August almost constantly, just like the summerbefore and the year before that. .....How does music-making in the summer differ from the rest of theyear?The most amazing difference is that we are at festivals, wherewe can interact and collaborate with other artists and colleagues.Collaborations are always fun. We get to perform with the others,but also we get to spend time with our friends. This summerwill bring to us opportunities to work with Jeannette Koekkoek;the Arianna Quartet; the Hyperion Quartet; James Campbell, ourfavorite clarinetist; cellists Mihai Tetel, Csaba Onczay andMark Johnson; violist Atar Arad; accordionist Joseph Petric;harpist Caroline Leonardelli; and jazz saxophonist Jane Bunnettalong with amazing Brazilian composer and pianist Egberto Gismonti.What are you looking forward to the most?Aside from camping, all the collaborations and meetings withfriends has the most meaning for me.
