'I started playing the violin when I was four, for about three months. But when the Cultural Revolution happened, I stopped playing. It wasn't appropriate to study western arts, so the violin had to be put on hold. I took it up again seriously when I was seven. Since I was little I'd always wanted to be a violinist. My mother had a big influence - she was an artist, a singer and a dancer.
