  • Heywood Jalissen says:

    Was Iturbi the real discoverer of Ytterbium (a chemical element) ?

  • Christine Page-Turner says:

    Have just got back from a concert in Honiton Church (part of our festival) There is no doubt Luka’s performance is the best we have ever had in Honiton. It was spine tingling and electrifying. We were so lucky to hear such talent.

  • Ruth Sharville says:

    We have just had the privilege of hearing Luka give a recital in Abergavenny. What a talent he is, and how lucky we are to have seen him so early in what promises to be a wonderful career!
