Listening is, in my opinion, one of the keys to musical performance. From this stems the ability to control the sounds of the piano, with finesse and subtlety. The work on sound has as a corollary the search for an adequate relationship with the instrument, by means of a flexible and natural technique. In my teaching, I pay great attention to the gesture and the quality of the touch, on which the quality of the sound depends.
