For Viktor. 'Pictures' performed wonderfully in a home recital

Last week I had an amazing experience. I was invited to an intimate home recital of Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition' by Ludwig Treviranus, New Zealand's most up-and-coming young concert pianist. When last year I learned that Ludwig loves the original piano version of Pictures, which he has absolutely mastered, I sent him a copy of my book For Viktor which I based on Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

He loved the book, we met and have become friends. And so he invited me to his recital. To hear Mussorgsky's amazing suite played on a beautiful old (1904) grand piano in a private living room is an amazing experience. Thank you, Ludwig.
