    Indeed, a very good pianist from Bulgaria! And a very interesting musician from Georgia!

    “Birmingham Royal Conservatory”
    Surely a music writer should know it’s now called Royal Birmingham Conservatoire?!

  • Jeffrey Biegel says:

    Congratulations to Emanuil and his wonderful teachers! (Pascal has been a dear friend since the early 1980s. He is a fabulous teacher, obviously.)
