Thank you to the Harbrough Hotel for your question
Q: Which violinist most inspires you and why?
A: Vanessa Mae, without a doubt. Her musical ability is just amazing. Her mum was her manager, and it seems that she took the enjoyment out of the violin for Vanessa. The daily mail said “But just before her 21st birthday Vanessa finally snapped.
Sick of her mother’s domineering influence, she fired her as her manager, desperately hoping they could have a normal mother/daughter relationship.”

But it didn’t happen for her, which really is very sad. But she had taken control, to have the life that she really wanted which took great courage, and I think that is truly inspiring.
Now she is planning to compete in the 2014 winter Olympics, skiing.
I’ve still never been to see her perform live you know, absolutely gutted!
Would I like to meet her?…I’d LOVE to meet her
