Me, Myself and I

I love watching the pictures of my childhood. They are the flagstones paving the boulevard of my memories. Photos are so precious to me because they never lie, they tell who we are and where we belong. They tell the story of our lives.

I was fed with music since I was born. Mum was an exceptional pianist, and a famous concertist, and she passed onto me her love for music. It’s my legacy. And my destiny. #beatgirl #music #piano #legacy #destiny

Looking back, though, I don’t begrudge Mum for those absences. I now understand what it meant to her. Besides, no matter how far she went, I knew she’d always come back to me. #beatgirl #absense #plane #travel #child

In my life, I took part in several piano competitions, I won many awards and soon got used to applauses. But the pride in my mother’s eye was always the biggest prize for me. #beatgirl #awards #prizes #piano #music #mother #love

The thing is, once music enters your life, and becomes your vocation, you do what it takes, even if it means long stints of travel and extended absences from your loved ones. #beatgirl #piano #music #travel

My mother’s pianoforte is the most perfect object you could ever see. She had it made by a famous Italian artisan, who used to be a big fan of hers. #beatgirl #piano #playing #pianist #music

Juilliard is my big dream. I’ve been working to be admitted since I was 15. Every day, every night. And I’ll make it. One day I’ll get into Juilliard! #beatgirl #juilliard #dream #music #piano

My mum and I used to be very close, even if she used to travel a lot. When she was home, she always found some time to spend with me. These are the best memories of my childhood, the moments when we were together. #beatgirl #mother #music #love #relationships

I remember one day, I must have been 5 years old, my mother sat at the piano and put me in her lap. When she started playing, I looked up at her face and I’ll never forget the expression of pure joy she had on her face. I think it’s in that moment that I decided I wanted to be a pianist. Just like her. #beatgirl #mother #love #piano #music

Since I was 5 I never spent one single day without touching the piano. I used to practice at least two, three, even five hours a day, painstakingly looking for perfection. #beatgirl #music #piano #perfection #girl
