At the age of twenty, she made her first recording of works by Schumann, followed a year later by a CD devoted to Chopin, both on the Arion label.
In January 1999, she performed at the Midem Music Festival in Cannes as one of the ‘Revelations Classiques de l’ADAMI’. She makes regular appearances as a soloist or chamber musician in France, in Europe, in USA and in Asia. Her partner of predilection is the violonist Nemanja Radulovic.
