A wonderful note from Stanislava Varshavski and Diana Shapiro:
Dear Renee and Tim,
Diana and I would like to thank you SO SO MUCH for incredible opportunity to perform at Farley's House of Pianos!!!
Your place is very unique. As pianists we couldn't wish for better pianos and conditions. Your piano choice is ALWAYS right. You feel the smallest details of a composer style and you know without any doubt what piano would be a great fit. Your audience is very educated and intelligent and You are educating people. Your pre-concert lectures are very helpful from artist's point of view and needed for a number of reasons. First of all, your guests talk not only about music but also about culture in general. After concert evening people go home with a feeling of discovering and learning something new! They enjoy and have fun and study at the same time. The other aspect of your concert evenings is young faces. Let's be honest, the majority of people who attend classical concerts is 60+. It doesn't happen in Farley's House of Pianos. I see more and more young faces who enjoy classical music because of you!!!!!
Renee and Tim! Thank you a lot for everything what you do for classical music, for your contribution in culture and education, for your huge help musicians!!!
With a great respect
Diana and Stasi.
