Georgian-born violinist Lisa Batiashvili is usually on the move, soloing with orchestras around the world. But since March she’s has been at home with her family in Germany and France. In this TIME IN interview, she talks about the pleasures of re-creating family recipes for her husband and children, playing chamber music with friends, and finding time for yoga and meditation amongst other things.

August 10, 2020. Even if you're staying home this summer, you can still take a trip around the world with violinist Lisa Batiashvili and her innovative new album, City Lights—a wonderful collection of musical portraits of cities that have played a part in her life and career. The album takes its name from Charlie Chaplin's famous film, and sets the tone for the tour with music by a wide range of composers including Chaplin himself.
