While studying composition by invitation in Rotterdam, she switched to a jazz course, and within a year was at the Berklee School in Boston. She has not looked back since. Touring constantly, Figarova has established an international following appreciative of her comprehensive command of the keyboard, her wide ranging compositions, and her ability to delve deeply into the personal.
AAJ contributor Franz Matzner spoke with Figarova just prior to her departure from the Netherlands on one of her many tours to the United States.
