da ripoff: I have never practised scales and I always got bad marks for technique.
da perfect pitch GENSUI: with Horowitz’s Carmen Variations. I listened to these on disc and then played my own version.
da confuzing sheeyat: I do not regard myself as a virtuoso, I do not find these pieces at all difficult. Many people think, only because there are really a lot of notes that the pieces have to be difficult. That is basically not the case. The only difficulty lies in the musical form
da random HO tech semi-dizz: I was never really so interested in Horowitz as a pianist but rather as a composer.
n finally, derez hope fo da COMME: I have never entered a competition. I was lucky that a Sony Manager was present when I played at a friend’s house in the South of France. This manager offered me an exclusive contract and we have recorded a CD.
