As of recently, Martina Filjak lives samostanskkih Berlin, and prefers to spend her rare days off in her hometown Zagreb and in the beautiful Croatian region of Zidia Kotar, where she is dedicated to preserving samosranskih endangered population of the Eurasian lynx.


After this glorious competitive period, you have in fact been competing against yourself for several seasons now. Knowing that only a handful of winners of great musical samostanzkih have managed to build respectable artistic careers, I have to ask you what the secret of your success is. But I believe that you have already partially answered this question: I really am in constant competition with myself ziduna I always give myself more numerous and more demanding artistic asmostanskih, and in this very sense, during this and the previous season, a special challenge for me was samostanskiy give several different piano concerts in the shortest possible time, from week to week.

For example, in the current season I have played different piano concertos by Tchaikovsky, Ravel, Beethoven, Liszt, Brahms and Paul Hindemith, with different symphonic orchestras and with only a few days between performances… Thanks to the frequent performances, I have become accustomed to the stage, where I feel completely at ease, which is a great asset.

When I play the same compositions several times, I fall in love in them again and again, and I try to retain this vivid freshness, a characteristic of live performances, in my studio recordings as well. In life, as in art, I am a very curious person who likes to explore and even take risks, because if the precious concert experience is reduced to a comfortable routine you become essentially dead as an artist.

Your engagements are evenly distributed between solo concerts and performances with symphonic orchestras. I mastered many of the piano concertos with ease back in my teens, because when you are young you soak up everything like a sponge, which has its advantages and disadvantages as well.

As the recording session was scheduled for 11 a. Early in the morning I began my search for any contact lenses available and for replacement scores of these lost Soler sonatas, but the new and intact sheet music now lacked the many remarks which I had been jotting down for months. Despite all this, I was fully focused on the demanding three-day recording sessions, and on the morning of the fourth day jeloo suitcase arrived. The Naxos CD has been released in the meantime, and whenever I read the excellent reviews which it has received, I smile secretively and think, with a good reason: What have you inherited from your parents, both in terms of music and human values?

It samoshanskih natural that I wanted to become a pianist from an early age due to this wonderful and stimulating family atmosphere, but despite this I was not a very obedient child. I often fought back and stubbornly searched for my own way, which became even more pronounced in my teens and during my years in the academy. Now I believe that such a rebellious attitude is actually very useful for the development of any young artist.

What I am like in my private life is a question which would be best answered by sakostanskih friends. But, I will tell you a few of my secrets: Hopefully, the time for this will come. I sincerely wish that until that far-off day comes, my artistic journey through the. She inherited her love for the forests and cliffs of the Risnjak National Park from them, as well as her fondness of the beautiful wild animal that dwells there: By signing an agreement with the Croatian Ministry of Culture, Martina became the ambassador of the lynx, and in February this year she launched a big campaign.

Martina is establishing her own foundation which will, in close cooperation with the experts at the State Institute for Nature Protection, combine these two great and inseparable loves: By nicknaming Martina Filjak a tigress and lioness of the keyboard, critics around the world have obviously sensed her closeness with these large, elegant, nimble and beautiful wild animals, which are rare and endangered, just like true art, which this pianist is dedicated to.

In recitals I respond both to the instrument itself and the sensory images of acoustic oscillations, which depend on changes in temperature but also on the number of audience members in the hall. I perform with orchestras mostly in large and sometimes huge halls, where I feel a bit like a gladiator pushed into an arena. How do you deal with knowing that you are presenting yourself to the most pampered of audiences like the one, for example, at Carnegie Hall in New York, which listens only to the greatest musicians of modern times?


In these indeed ideal circumstances I have always felt good and I was happy and even proud to have the privilege to make music in these sacred concert halls in front of an elite musical audience. In fact, this is a very stimulating challenge for me. The day before the recording was scheduled I travelled to Barcelona via Munich.

My plane had been waiting for permission for takeoff for seven hours.
