I wish you everyone a wonderful new year with peace, good health, happiness and prosperity!
I visited St.Petersburg between December 18th and 23rd (First time in Russia!), and spent the Christmas and New Year's Eve with some friends in snowy Berlin.
Now I'm working on the program of my first recital this year (Jan.9th in North Germany) which features the anniversary composers this year -Schumann (200th birth), Chopin (200th birth), Albeniz (150 birth), Balakirev (100 death) . I feel like celebrating those composers everyday by practicing their pieces!
