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

The original letter

"A highly esteemed performer in the former Soviet Union, Oleh Krysa gave a charismatic and thoroughly compelling performance. ...Here Krysa demonstrated once again why he is held in such high regard, as he gave further voice to his extraordinary technical expertise, tackling monstrous feats with great composure."
