“I am delighted and very proud to have the privilege to take part in such an outstanding event of prime importance, the Menuhin Competition 2016. It is the 100th anniversary of Menuhin´s birthday and in participating in the contest I hope to get a little closer to the extraordinary violinist and exceptional person in a way. Most certainly it will enable me to come up to his notion of music as a chance to pay a contribution to international understanding. I will do my bit sincerely and with honesty by means of music, the only language in which you can´t tell lies.” (Anne Luisa Kramb )
