I just noticed this review and was so happy with it. As a musician, you couldn’t be more vulnerable to criticism. My teacher used to say that it takes a lifetime to master music, and 2 paragraphs in a review to destroy it. Nonetheless, I am very flattered with this positive review. Hope you enjoy it:

In the case of Thomas Yu, both are true...[He] plays the piece with elegance and depth...and his interpretation was the highlight of the festival day.Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany's largest newspaper, translated.
