“I could rarely listen to a Schumann’s piece played in such a profound and authentic way by a so young pianist”
“...quando prende nelle sue mani questo ritmo lo impasta con polso nervoso per liberarlo come un’anima che ha bisogno di Dio. Quest’anima è magica, vola, penetra, arriva fino in fondo portando il sereno, la gioia, la tristezza pura come le lacrime”
