Three questions to Anna Malesza-Kutny:
A composer: I can’t answer unequivocally, it depends on the day, the mood … One day it’s Mozart, the next day Stravinsky, Szymanowski, then Rachmaninov etc. I love many of them!
What was your calling to become a singer? When I was a violinist (before I started to sing) I always felt the need to express myself, not only with music. I fell in love with the theatre at first sight, and it remains that way.
To be a singer – in three words: Work a lot but not too much, distance yourself, distance yourself from the world.
