“Three young pianists meet Emmanuel Ax, who's friendly but sometimes woolly in his remarks. All are proficient-plus, but Samson Tsoy has the most promise.”
“One could hardly wish for a more genial, insightful and sympathetic guide from the ranks of today's leading pianists than Emanuel Ax...there is enormous pleasure in eavesdropping what is essentially a private lesson and which, as a by-product, helps us realise what great imagination and insight it takes to be a world-class pianist.”
