I truly appreciated the qualities showcased in your program, from the exquisite sound produced,the assuredness of your technique and most importantly the sensibility and intelligence in the interpretation of the various pieces. It has been a real pleasure to listen to your performance. I am sure you have an excellent Maestro, kindly extend my compliments to him as well. I look forward to listening to your performance live in the next edition of our Competition as part of the previous edition’s winners opening concert. Hopefully I will be able to organize additional concerts for you in Italy around the same time.
