In the first place it was the biggest challenge to come to the Competition. I found it risky and extremely exciting to participate. I was very glad that the audience was very welcoming and supportive. It really helped me to perform as I usually do in concerts.
Winning it was wonderful! I suddenly realised what an honour it was. Playing on Il Cannone twice now, was really fascinating.
This competition has helped me with my career and I'm truly thankful!
But for me however it's just a starting point to a hopefully interesting and long life ahead!
