“Pianist Fanya Lin had me speechless when I first heard her play. She was absolutely breathtaking. I sat there in absolute awe. She’s such an interesting musician to watch.

She’s small and diminutive in stature and a giant musically. When she gets behind the piano, magic happens. She is music personified and I am amazed at her talent and energy.
