Editor’s letter


To evolve as an artist requires courage and openness. For those occupying that exclusive top level of international fame, these qualities are even more important, particularly considering the level of scrutiny from audiences and peers.

It was only last year that she finally felt able to take on the role of artistic director of a summer festival – Audi Summer Concerts in Ingolstadt, Germany.
