Just a normal day at the office, choosing a piano for my very first recording with an orchestra- Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto no 1 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & Darrell Ang to be released on Signum Records, produced by Alexander Van Ingen. Ah, dreams do come true if you work hard 😉

New Masters on Tour

Absolutely brilliant time last night! My debut at the Royal Festival Hall, talk on Messiaen with T W Hutchinson, Paul Griffiths and Robert Saxton and world premiere of Aled Smith‘s “uncertain light”. Thank you so much Royal Philharmonic Society, it’s been a privilege to be involved in this!

Clipe de magie retraiesc uitandu-ma la aceste fotografii. Va multumesc fiecaruia in parte pentru dragostea cu care m-ati primit, caldura si frumoasele cuvinte pe care mi le-ati adresat. Muzica uneste suflete, comunica orice sentiment si are o putere covarsitoare. Gandul si speranta mea este sa incercam sa fim mai buni, fiecare prin ceea ce face […]
