She has also played in the Tivoli Mozart Festival, Copenhagen, the Beethoven festival in Malmo as well as many British festivals including Tunbridge Wells, Greenwich and Docklands and Edinburgh Fringe.
A keen interest in contemporary music has led her to work with composers, Gorecki and Per Norgard and led her to give the Uk premier of Norgard’s Cantica for Cello and Piano. Television appearances include broadcasts on the BBC and T.V. Polonia as well as Polish radio. She teaches at the Royal Academy of Music Junior Department and is an adjudicator for the British International Federation of Festivals.
