Violin playing is a physical art with great traditions behind it.
Beethoven and Beatles, Mozart and Michael Jackson, Paganini and Prince - I like them all.
People find it hard to understand how I can risk ruining my career as a musician by injuring myself on the slopes, but I've always been a tomboy.
The stage is the best experience in the world. It's a great compliment to be able to share the music, because people can hear my album but they don't get to make the connection in the same way as when it's one-to-one.
I could have taken the easy life and just done classical, but I felt very strongly about the album, my first pop album, the first time that I'd fused so many influences. I was very proud when it was in the charts in 25 countries at once.
All the time I'm changing as an artist and as a person.
For example, I loved English and history at school. I would have loved to have done a degree in either. But my Mom said I didn't have time for university.
I started skiing around the same time as I began playing the piano, at around four, before moving to the violin at five.
In an ideal world, I'd spend every weekend at my home in Zermatt in Switzerland.
When I hit my 20s, I took a chill pill and relaxed because throughout my teens I was churning out an album a year. It was a treadmill of work then recording, promoting and touring.
Music is about the performance.
Music will always be my greatest passion.
But I don't mind, I'm a bit of a touring animal. When I'm on tour that is the greatest thrill for me, playing to a live audience.
But I still think it's mind over matter in the sense that if you're strong, you can combat anything.
I don't mind about the boos from the audience.
