Maurice Lacroix - Danny Koo
Danny Koo is a Korean-American violinist. He started playing the violin at six years of age. Today, he is a soloist, chamber musician, a recitalist and a speaker, making appearances throughout the world. He appreciates the value of time. Indeed, time is required to practise, but it also provides respite from his busy schedule.
However, Danny also appreciates the value of time from a philosophical perspective. The quote ‘Success is a journey, not a destination’, is clearly something that resonates with Danny. “It is so important to realise the beauty of the present. A few years back, I found myself always focussing on the next destination, next piece of music, next concert and I realised I wasn’t truly enjoying the ‘now’.” Often with age and experience comes maturity and Danny has realised that to remain ambitious and motivated, he has to enjoy the present.
Similar to Danny, Maurice Lacroix employs much creativity in order to produce new watches. It is this shared vision that appealed to Stéphane Waser, Managing Director: "We support talented individuals who have a strong desire to realise their ambitions. Danny shares our values. Like Maurice Lacroix, he appreciates the importance of precision timing. For Maurice Lacroix this may mean skilfully regulating a movement while for Danny it means hitting the right notes at the right time.”
Danny has enjoyed the sweet taste of success on several occasions, but he continues to push himself, seeking fresh challenges and new journeys. Recently, he released a new album called ‘Connected’ and he hopes with its release, more people around the globe will discover his music.
