“My first recital was when I was asked to play for the "telethon", a big charity in France. I was 17 years old, it was in a very small city called Saint Maixent. I didn't even know what a Steinway was until I tried it. After a few seconds playing it, I felt like flying, it is to the piano what the Rolls Royce is to cars... I always say that. The sound, the action, the quality, is just incredible. I've tried a lot of pianos in the last ten years, but I have to say Steinway is the one for me. If someone says "you play on Steinway tonight", then I know it's going to be great.” September 14, 2011
