“I never had the craving to perform from a script, which has affected my ability to read other people’s words in my role as a lecturer or presenter. I just can’t do it. I never write my speeches in full, I only put down sketches and plans. Words should be born on the stage, only then do they come to life. The magic of this art lies in the ability to connect with listeners and make them co-authors of this living contact between musicians or lecturers and their audience. No hi-tech equipment can replace this.
