The most widely criticised singers in the history of opera, Maria Callas and Franco Corelli, happen also to be the best singers. I am honoured for being part of their group.
I also always carry my flute. It's very important for me to try to relax when I'm travelling, and playing my flute helps me to unwind.
I have trouble with modern art. But in general, all art forms fascinate me - art is the way human beings express what we can't say in words.
I like to windsurf and ski, and most of all I love to ride horses. The wilder and faster the better! If I'm presented with a fast horse or a fast boat, I still get that shiver of excitement and I cannot resist. Luckily I never seem to have any accidents, and thank God for that.
