What is the best thing about playing the horn?

Playing the hero's instrument!

If you could ask any composer one question, who would you pick and what would you ask him/her?

“Herr Mozart, HOW?!“

What is your guilty pleasure that you only listen to in secret?

Movie Soundtracks. The really cheesy ones.

If you had a super power, what would it be?

Considering I already have most of them, I think it'd be quite ungrateful to ask for more.

What has been your best AMK moment so far?

Watching the power of food do its magic after coming back from Codroipo “downtown“ with 11 pizzas – family size! – and giving them to a pack of hungry musicians, while realising that they also happen to be some of the best people you know and that you're allowed to make music with them for the rest of the day – that moment is definitely up there!

Describe AMK in three words.
