Mrs Philips said she didn’t think anythings of her live performance, she just plays, she doesn’t think.
Her first concert was in Venise and this is her best memory.
When she played her first time, she was 4 years old. She had to play because of her mother. At the beginning, she didn’t like playing, but now, she loves playing.
The first piece of music she played in her carrier was Nina by Pergolsese (an Italian composer), she was 19 years old.
She has already played in America, in Australia, in Europe and she’s going to play in China.
She has already played a duet with violinists and pianists.
Obviously, she travelled a lot for her carrier.
She would prefer to travel to Italy and, not for her carrier, in India, in Thaïland and in Africa.
