“You demonstrated a special gift of musical sensitivity here today in your playing that no teacher can teach, neither can be learned from a book. I’ve performed with enough pianists over the years to recognize this kind of musicality when I encounter it and I did today in your performance. Always take good care of this gift and continue to develop it by exercising it.”
