A poised, warm and genuinely musically shaped Largo. Nicely paced, (not too slow or quick) with appealing breadth and tasteful shaping. Excellent communication throughout the two contrasting movements brought a truly cohesive result in all aspects of style, balance, and blend of sound in the hall. Warm, advanced, professional sounds. Great maturity offered by both the piano and cello today.

Through learning the cello, my thinking capacities have improved and I have become much more efficient in studying medicine. I highly recommend Sofia as a cello teacher and think she is an amazing person. Thank you Sofia.
