Truly honoured to have been awarded the Grand Prize Special from all categories at II Augustin Aponte International Music Competition with an invitation to perform in Tenerife for next year's concert season. A huge thanks to Tarisio Auctions for lending me a gorgeous Dollenz cello (Italy - 1850) that helped me bring out the best of my capacities. Well done to all the amazing performers that I met throughout the event, now time for a proper rest but stay tuned for further updates!
