"To play a wrong note is insignificant.
To play without passion is inexcusable."
"Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."
"Music has been an emotional journey for me
and is a huge part of who I am.
When I play the piano,
I feel completely transported to
a different world where music truly matters."
