“Ms. Szlubowska’s interpretation of the Wieniawski Concerto No.2 was filled with warm lyricism and flawless technique.”
“When we feel, a kind of lyric is sung in our heart. When we think, a kind of music is played in our mind. In harmony, both create a beautiful symphony of life.”
“The perfect orchestration of the symphony of life is one of the Creator’s greatest and most beautiful miracles.”
