"I had the great good fortune to hear my NIGHT OF THE FOUR MOONS

conducted by the accomplished Italian conductor Simone Fontanelli.

It is rare that one's music is prepared with such sensitivity and insight,

combined with such superb technical skill. My warmest congratulations

to this wonderful musician!"
