What is the ideal life for you as a musician?
- It is simple. I am an absolute fan of string quartet. To be honest I haven’t met anyone alike. When I realized that this is mine, I just lost senses in a good way. As a result: I gathered a quartet, we became students of Zhubanova State String Quartet, and I became its Manager, packed the house, organized concerts for children, author’s concerts, mastered the viola in 2 months to act as a good violist in the quartet, we participated in competitions, went to master classes of the best quartet teachers in Switzerland, I collected the notes of Kazakhstani string quartet composers such as Gaziza Zhubanova, Arman Zhaiym, Kuat Shildebayev and made the FIRST edition, released a whole collection, having received the State grant. I moved to America and then assembled my own quartet and we performed and played Kazakh compositions everywhere. So I’m a fan. And I only see myself in a quartet.
