Chamber music, for me, is a personal theatre, where there is no singing partner, no ostentatious decorations or costumes, and the singer – only with his song and his soul – creates such a complex world or entire human fate within a couple of minutes, which otherwise, in the opera, gets constructed in two or three hours and on a thirty-foot stage. When I’m less busy in the theatre, I spend most of my time learning songs. Due to the intimate nature of the genre, in opposition to the opera, it does not need a lot of volume but rather you need to play with timbres and text, in certain meaning it gives the singer a lot more freedom than the opera.
