On the day of my rehearsal, someone came into the hall. I thought it was just someone from the public wanting to listen, but it turned out to be a photographer for Süddeutsche Zeitung, which is one of Germany’s largest newspapers. She was going to feature me and some other musicians in an article. Little did I know that it was going to be a review of the performance as well! Here are the versions below:

Here is Google’s best attempt at a translation:

Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany's largest newspaper, translated.
