Words along the path
Life is a journey through unknown territory. We meet people who accompany us for parts of the way, sometimes for a long time. Here is room for the words we give to each other. I am looking forward to your thoughts and greetings from all over the world.

Congratulations on your two prizes, one for piano, the other for harp. For you, it doesn't seem to matter which instrument you play. You appear to get the most music out of every instrument. Every musician has a little bit of music of the universe. But this little piece of music needs to be shared, as you do, In you and in your music, we begin to hear the music of the spheres. Best wishes to you.

How wonderful, Elena that you continue to develop your talents. I am especially impressed with your ability to assess the possibilities when pursuing more than one instrument. Prizes are exciting, but more important, in my opinion, is the way you continue explore and develop a wide range of creative avenues… We need your energy and enthusiasm and skill and beauty in the world… I can't wait to see what other mountains you will choose to climb.

Congratulations to the amazing heptathlete ;-).
On a serious note, I feel your awards for both instruments are absolutely wonderful and you can be so proud of yourself. I really love the picture of you on your website playing the harp. You look very elegant and radiate a gracefulness, which is very beautiful.

This competition really encompasses the crème de la crème of young music talents all over Germany and I am so happy for you not just having been able to participate but also having been awarded two fabulous prizes. Well done Elena and my warmest wishes go to you and all the exciting ventures and musical experiences that still lie ahead of you.

A recognition to the commitment and dedication of your father to you, as he said: "my projects can wait, now my priority is my daughter"
This, dear Elena Manja, is a great gift of generosity your father is giving you;

His absolute dedication ...
His absolute support ...
His admiration ...
His knowledge ...
His wisdom ...

All this dedicated to you;
Do you know how lucky you are?
I know you know,
I hear that you know,
Your music ...your inspiration ... reveal the balance and moderation that confers the love of a father.

Congratulation Elena. - what an amazing talent

Congratulations once again. Playing in concert and competition seems to help build a sense of musicality within one's self. I continue to appreciate your quote from Gustav Mahler, "What is best in music is not to be found in the notes." Music grows from within whenever you play in concert and competition. It's a natural form of "catching" the music in between the notes. I wish you well as you continue to explore the many dimensions of music.
