  1. An exquisite pianist – one of my favourites…this is beautiful of course…
    what texture and tenderness…


    • A expressive soul, most articulate than most in the musical world, far that matter in any artistic endeavor: His interpretation, listening to him feeling through the piano , always gives me something to think about, to create, not to ignore…

      Thanks for your kind thoughts, Valerie…I hope to be able to find more marvelous musical pieces to inspire ourselves from!
