I am delighted to have been selected as a Bärenreiter Jubilee Ambassador.

As I have Mozart as my main repertoire, the Bärenreiter is definitely a very valuable and important edition for me.

My first encounter with Bärenreiter was also Mozart’s piano concerto. I remember it was the 12th piano concerto. I was only 13 years old, but I still remember being very impressed by the precision by Bärenreiter providing so many details. After that, I played many Mozart concertos, and at the same time I had the opportunity to study many symphonies in Bärenreiter’s edition. In particular, I studied all of Beethoven’s piano sonatas and symphonies for hours every day when I was a student, comparing them to other editions, and was fascinated by Bärenreiter’s overwhelming interpretation, and since that time I have trusted Bärenreiter more than any other of the many editions.

It is especially interesting that the color of the cover changes for each composer. When you have a lot of repertoire, it can be cluttered and hard to find who and which piece this is, but Bärenreiter is always easy to find. And I think it’s great that they use colors that are easy on the eyes. If you spend a lot of time looking directly at the sheet music, you may get tired of the bright colors on the cover, but with Bärenreiter, it never happens.

I am only 25 years old, a young age both as a pianist and a musician, and I am eager to see my career continue to develop with Bärenreiter.

Again, thank you so much for choosing me as your Bärenreiter Jubilee Ambassador.
