Note from Natasha:
"Thank you to everyone who came to share this magical moment with me and the AO under Chopin's spell with his 2nd piano concerto on 22 July. It is a significant and emotional work for me, gifted to me by my Ukrainian teacher when I was 16. I dedicate this performance to him, for his perseverance, courage and dedication in nurturing this fire that permeates in my music and life. Watch this space for videos and photos to come."
