"Music is my first language."

"The six sonatas of Ysaÿe were always with me in competitions, concerts, and not only on the stage, even when I had a hard time.

During the recording, I played all the sonatas with gratitude.

They have connected me to so many people and provided me with opportunities in my life.
I hope the gratitude I poured into this recording delivers peace to all people in the world."
