BIOGRAPHY


"Inevitable and devastating, so was the poignant vision of Bah's Brahms, letting the audience of Rio to burst into tears of emotion. I never have listened a musician who can let pray Rio's audience during a concert. Perhaps this guy was touched by G-d's finger."

"A profoundly mature pianist despite the very young age, with the ability to dig inside the keyboard creating phonic and timbric effects that tend to ultra-high ground."
