First Violin

Charlotte Rafn

My education: Studies with Milan Vitek at the Royal Danish Conservatory. Further studies with Chaim Taub in Tel Aviv as well as Daniel Stabrawa & Allesandro Cappone in Berlin.

My favourite composition: I have so many.  Daphnis et Chloe and La valse by Ravel, Winterreise by Franz Schubert, and Lohengrin by Wagner to name a few.

My greatest musical experience: Playing Gurrelieder by Schoenberg with the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Simon Rattle. That is an experience I will never forget!

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: When Sir Simon Rattle conducted the Kapel for his Sonnings Prize award concert.
