November 2014

Cam Fuller approached me with six questions to answer, and I enjoyed responding to all of them. They were intuitive questions, and they also made me chuckle. I hope you enjoy reading this article as I did! Credit for the incredible photo is from V. Tony Hauser. He has photographed many Canadian artists like Glenn Gould, Pinkas Zuckerman, Richard Bradshaw, and others like John Lennon! I am so lucky to be a part of his upcoming exhibition, to be release some time in the coming months.

Also, I was interviewed by the Saskatoon Symphony. Questions were asked, about why I perform, what makes me a musician, what I think a city needs to survive, so many deep thoughts. You can see as the interview progresses how more passionate I get, especially when I was asked why an orchestra is important to a city. If anything…you can use this interview to fall asleep if you’re an insomniac.

Anyone who dares to play Beethoven's last Piano Sonata Opus 111 must be fearless and confident in his skills. 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.
