Being an artist comes with a great deal of self-examination. It is impossible to escape questions like, ‘Is there a reason to make new CD recordings of classical music in the 21st century?’, ‘Aren’t there enough great ones out there already?’. Prior to, and during the recording of Glowing Sonorities, through the experience of working with the sonatas of Schubert, Reinecke and Franck I felt an extremely strong urge to record the deep emotions evoked in me by these exceptional works in my own voice. I could only hope that the artistic values generated in me through this work would reach the audience through these recordings, and dared to only dream about what has come true in this past year. Glowing Sonorities sold out so quickly, it needed to be reprinted three times, collecting rave reviews from all corners of the world. Through the five CD launch concerts, I have travelled 19136 kilometres with the music, and am forever grateful for the enthusiasm of its listeners, which I I had the opportunity of receiving first hand on these occasions.
