In November I got invited by ARTIS INTERNATIONAL CLASSICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL for a recital at the National Radio Corporation in Sofia.
I want to express officially all my admiration toward the devotion, the kindness, the impeccable organisation of this Festival by the entire Festival crew.

In places this new Festival at the top position for being one of the most prestigious new Festival in Europe.The audience was enthusiastic and very much reactive. They need this kind of concerts!
In a moment in which the Europe widely opens its borders, it’s fundamental to vehiculate an image of cultural dynamism and being supportive with the music and Art in general.

I can’t wait for coming back to the ARTIS INTERNATIONAL CLASSICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL very soon and I feel honored to have been invited among the very first ones to this fantastic Festival in the beautiful city of Sofia.
