Chernobyl disaster

I attend a special kind of kindergarten               
for linguistically retarded children,                
where i learned to articulate .. more                
or less at least .. e.g. the "r" I learned               
much later at the age of about 25, while          
singing songs of Высоцкий   
1985 - 1997
Piano lessons with
Sung-Hsiung Kuo,
the person who
teaches me through
my youth. During this
time I               give quite a number
of                                concerts. Meanwhile,
                                     my piano playing
                                     changes towards
                                   experimental jazz -
                which        is NOT ready for a
                  concert I'm afraid.
