The interviewer (Nikki Kazimova) met Narguiz A for an interview on March 20, 2011. Narguiz is a successful pianist, who gives frequent concerts and travels extensively around the world with her family.

My name is Narguiz, I am 43. I have three children – two girls, 14 and 10, and a boy who is 18 months old. I’ve been married for 15 years.

I live with my husband and children, and there is always some help around the house – a housekeeper and a nanny. I wouldn’t want to live with in-laws or parents, I find this situation unnatural. I would not have married if our family could not live separately. Even with the best mother-in-law, it is hard. My sister went through that for 13 years and we ended up solving this problem for her and buying an apartment  to separate them from her in-laws.

I was born and have always lived in Baku. My mom is from Iravan (Yerevan). They moved to Baku in the 1950s. My dad is a native Bakuvian, all of his predecessors, as far as we know, were from Baku.
