Carnegie Hall debut coming up!

Great news today: My Carnegie Hall debut recital is all set up! Please join the crowdfunding campaign on the link, it is very much appreciated!

I am already the proud recipient of Nils Larsen bequest 2016 (Nils Larsens legat) and All Classical Portland is kindly sponsoring me. Nevertheless, there are still expenses unpaid in connection with this great step. If you care about piano playing, romantic music and beautiful sound and phrasing, I invite you to join me on my way to Carnegie Hall 2017!

Thanks so much!
