Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all having a great weekend. Here is my first published interview with the San Francisco newspaper. It's brief, but Ms. Kern offers her take on Art, the future of pianism, and her relation to Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky.

As always, thank you all for reading ! smile

Classical music will always be alive for this healing.


I like that answer, especially the section I put in italics. It reminds me of the famous Picasso quote about dust.

Picasso: Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
