I raise my hat to Grigory Sokolov

Dear Mr. Bianchedi, ladies and gentlemen of Comitato Artistico di Cremona Mondomusica e Piano Experience.

I refuse to receive the prize, Cremona Music Award 2015. According to my ideas about elementary decency, it is shame to be in the same award-winners list with Lebrecht.

Good to see that at least one fine musician has his principles and is sticking to them. Any copyrighted material on these pages is included for critical analysis only, and will be removed at the request of copyright owner(s). Also on Facebook and Twitter.
