"DURING MY ACTIVITY AS A MUSIC CRITIC(…) FEW TIMES I HAVE MET SUCH A YOUNG MUSICIAN SO COMMITED TO DISCOVER NEW THINGS AND LEARN NEW TECHNIQUES AND VOCABULARIES, DEVELOPING HIS MUSIC FURTHER AND FURTHER WITH A RARE FOCUS AND PERSEVERANCE. (…)
CONSIDERING THE ALMOST SOLITARY CONDITIONS OF HIS WORK(...) IT WAS KIND OF A MIRACLE TO HAVE SOMEONE DOING WHAT HE DID THE WAY HE DID IT. ONLY A VERY SPECIAL PERSON WAS ABLE OF SUCH ENTERPRISE, MOVED BY A NEVER ENDING CURIOSITY AND A PURPOSE IN LIFE. SINCE THEN I’M ALWAYS KEEPING ME INFORMED OF WHAT HE’S DOING AND (...) KNOWING THAT HE WILL BE, IN A NEAR FUTURE, A VERY IMPORTANT MUSICIAN NOT ONLY IN MY COUNTRY, BUT ALSO IN EUROPE AND THE WORLD."
