She brought the drums - usually relegated to the back of the orchestra - to the front of the stage, becoming what is generally recognised as classical music's first full-time professional solo percussionist.9 Nov 2003 - 12:00am

Few musicians can claim to have worked with such diverse talents as Sir Georg Solti, Indonesia's top gamelan master, Mstislav Rostropovich and Bjork.5 Jul 1996 - 12:00am
