“Magdalena brought magic to our summer birthday party in our garden. On a rainy autumn evening amazingly she did just the same, as she played from our conservatory whilst the party drank champagne. She plays with a natural grace indicative of her personality”

I was especially blessed when I heard ‘Amara’ – I really feel the need to tell you that I have never in my life (and I am 66 years young) been as moved as I was by your music, it was really very special. A big thank you for the beauty of your music!”
