As you listen to these four astonishing young artists, all on the threshold of what will surely be remarkable careers in music, there will be no mistaking how hard they have worked and how well they have been taught. It has been my pleasure to meet these four exceptional musicians, studying in conservatoires and playing in competitions over the last few years. This is a glimpse of the future of music in our country and it surely is a cause for celebration. What finer example could there be of the power of The Ties between Pupil & Teacher!
