When she was 18, she won the gold medal at the Carl Flesch competition in London. A few years later, she won the silver medal at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. During those years, she learned from Yehudi Menuhin, Joseph Szigeti, and Sandor Vegh.
She often appears as a soloist with orchestras or in recitals, but she also spends a lot of her time playing chamber music. She has played in the Munich String Trio (with violist Oscar Lysy and cellist Walter Notas) for over 20 years. She was the violin professor at the Munich University of Music for a long time, and trained many young violinists who continued on to very successful careers. Now she is a professor at Kronberg Academy Masters. She is often asked to be a juror in major violin competitions (i.e. the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition of Belgium and the International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in Helsinki).
