About the album

My journey with this album began during a challenging period, but it turned out to be an incredible experience. While I was in the hospital for heart surgery, I started listening to Beethoven’s Pathétique Sonata, performed by Barenboim. It lifted my spirits and sparked a thought – wouldn’t it be wonderful to spread happiness through music? That’s when I began dreaming of becoming a concert pianist. After my recovery, I devoted more time to playing the piano and was accepted into the Young Musician Academy in Tilburg. During the Bunschoten Younger Talent Award ceremony, someone asked about my dreams. I mentioned wanting to release my own album, never expecting it to happen so quickly.

A jury member and the artists & repertoire manager at TRPTK, Maya Fridman, invited me to their studio in Utrecht. Just a week later, I signed my first album deal. “Luminescence” embodies my dream, passion, and love for music. The title symbolizes the light and joy that music brings into my life. I selected pieces that hold deep meaning for me, hoping listeners will feel the same connection and discover their own light through the music.
