On October 17th, 2015, I was celebrating 30 years of my performing career. On this day, exactly 30 years ago I became a Finalist of the F. Chopin International Competition in Warsaw, Poland. My life changed. Endless concert trips and performances followed. The repertoire I selected for the evening included complete Opus of Mazurkas and Sonata No. 3 - compositions I had in my competition 3rd round program back in 1985.

I am deeply touched after performing together with magnificent Johanne Perron, who kindly agreed to join me during the evening at the Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall - Rozsa Centre of the University of Calgary, performing Chopin's Cello Sonata Op. 65 and Introduction & Grand Polonaise Op. 3.

Thank you to all of you who did find time to come to share the evening with us!
