“ I really liked how you set the scene. Turning out the lights and lighting up a few candles offered feelings of serenity. I watched the candle light throughout the music. Then came your narrator. It was a great prelude of giving us your perception of what this piece is about. From listening to you, I gathered that this piece is going to take me on a journey. There would be a starting point, a spiritual passage and
perhaps a new destination or a return”.
-KEN SUJISHI, music student speaking of recital at UCLA for Maria Alice.
