It’s time to share…

My dear friends,

It’s my pleasure to share with you the recent activities of my last tour, from Europe to U.S. The whole experience has been enriching and marvelous.

The highlight being the performance of the double piano concerto with the dynamic Polish pianist Adam Kosmieja, with NOSPR orchestra conducted by the charismatic conductor Alexander Liebreich, at the inaugural concert of the historically important Warsaw Autumn festival.

After my residency at Ircam in Paris, I had the chance to explore the super charming Polish city Bydgoszcz, then rehearsed at the brand-new world class concert hall in Katowice, followed by the performed at the National Concert Hall in Warsaw, which hosted so many legendary pianists, not to mention being the home of the Chopin Competition, which I’m following right now.

A wonderful surprise was the appearance of the great Chopin Competition winner, RafaƂ Blechacz, in the audience. Apparently, he drove for 4 hours each way plus a night at the hotel to listen to our 15 minute concerto by living composer Philippe Manoury. Someone with such grand career playing classical music repertoires would take such interest and efforts to listen to contemporary music is really mind-blowing to me! And maybe it is some strange spin of the universe, now with all the special connections I feel with Poland and Chopin, I am studying Chopin more than ever in my life, and will be offering the premiere of a brand new program in NY next year Jan. at Le Poisson Rouge, called “Where is Chopin?” music by Jaroslaw Kapuscinski and Robert Schumann, with visuals, electronics and artificial intelligence program Antescofo.
Following Warsaw, I went straight to U.S., toured in Georgia and Florida, and met many wonderfully enthusiastic music lovers and lovely people.
I feel very fortunate to be doing what I do and I am so thankful to all my teachers, friends and colleagues who always supported me.
