"I am so grateful to ROSL for this wonderful initiative to keep the creation of music and audience's engagement with it alive during these uncertain times. It is amazing to feel so supported by a family at the moment who are doing everything possible to keep the arts and creativity alive using all the mediums possible. It is simply amazing! For my home recording, I wanted to play Chopin's first impromptu principally for its ineffably care-free nature. It bubbles with unshadowed joy in its outer sections and even the central section, in the minor key, has a radiance and charm to it. The piece simply offers such happiness and positivity at this time that, for four minutes, it is so easy to lose oneself and just adore life again."
