“My decision has nothing to do with the pandemic, but it is making it easier ..."  Julia has this week said.

"There is no final concert, where everybody says goodbye but I went out on a high note with the quartet ... I worked very hard to keep my playing as strong as possible, and our literature was extra difficult on that last concert in January - I am proud of that,” she has said.
