What a beautiful arrangement and performance…
This music and especially your playing really touched my heart.
Together with this wonderful sculpture it gives an idea of eternal harmony…

My students will love playing this. It is very helpful to have all the different instrumentation possibilities.

I agree with Mariana Dimitrova from Washington: “It is a wonderful addition to your published works, which are in great demand at my studio.”

Thank you so much for this very kind and thoughtful gift which is appreciated by so many persons from all over the world. I found comments from Poland, USA, Germany, Denmark, France, Czech Republic, Austria, Great Britain, Brazil, Thailand, Hawaii, Argentina and Italy.

This great resonance made me thinking: Why are so many persons reacting?
Dr. Suzuki gives us the answer in his book:

What is man‘s ultimate direction in life?
It is to look for love, truth, virtue,
and beauty.
Shinichi Suzuki

Many thanks again!
Merry Christmas

Fröhliche Weihnachten, Kirsten!

Thank you for the lovely Arcangelo Corelli arrangement to share with my students. A special Present, in the literal sense. Your efforts touch the hearts of my students and their families. Arigato.

Happy, Healthy, and Peaceful 2013!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Thank you for all these responses.
At the homepage of the German Suzuki Association I received more than 70 answers from all over the world (German and English pages). I did not expect such a resonance!

Here you find a little tune for the opening of the New Year!
Unassuming, gentle, but very beautiful, with great impact for any serious practitioner.

I wish you all a very Happy, Happy New Year!
