Letter from Ruggiero Ricci

Ruggiero Ricci

May 2, 2003

Dear Prof. Krysa,

I haven’t heard all of your CDs but I heard a few notes to know that I was listening to one of today’s truly great violinists. Such perfection and musicality, but the real hallmark of your phrasing is the poetic style.

My great admiration,

Ruggiero Ricci
