“These upcoming concerts are a very special home-coming of sorts for me. Australia will always have a place in my heart having already toured the length and breadth of your sunburnt country and I just cannot wait to be able to play again for you. I hope to see you all at these concerts in November and see you in the foyers after the concerts. ”Andrey Gugnin
