No envy, no competitions

img  Tobias
In an Interview for Pianist Magazine, Natasha Paremski painted a bright picture of her first one and a half years at Manes: Even though she was currently enjoying a great deal of success, there was no sign of jealousy among her fellow students, who even turned up for her debut at the Carnegie Hall in February of 2004. Paremski made a clear distinction between performing and competing - while she loved playing live, she admitted not exactly liking the "backstabbing" going on at competitions. This means, we will probably not find her at the Van Cliburn or Leeds.
On a more personal note, Natasha emphasised the need to talk to people other than musicians and to just go out for a walk in the parc. And she gave a clear indication of her preferences: She loved Bach for being "divine", Chopin "because there was nobody like him before or after" and Mozart and Haydn for being "so pure": "I love playing them in the morning".
