Xina Hawkins is a violist who grew up in Australia and currently lives in Berlin. We spoke about the importance of focus, performance anxiety and making a living as a classical musician.
Xina has a few music recommendations. The first is this amazing performance by Kayhan Kalhor and Toumani Diabaté at the Morgenland Festival in 2017. Next is the track Molasses by Hiatus Kaiyote, and her third recommendation is an album called Beethoven: Violin and Piano Sonatas, performed by Andreas Staier and Daniel Sepec.
