    We’ve heard him twice now. Yesterday, under Mariss Jansons’ baton, he again played immaculate. This ‘kid’ is sitting there as if he’s a member for years. Wonderful musician!

    1. Brian says:

      Looking forward to hearing him tomorrow, under the baton of the great Mariss Jansons!

  2. Thomasina says:

    He has completed his probationary period. Congratulations!

    I wonder if he knows a little bit of Taiko Drumming too! Awesome!
