"My dream had come true; I was playing the most famous instrument in the world right here, right now and all I could think about was my mother being so far away in Israel, not able to see, hear and appreciate it with me. Imagining her eyes and warm touch, I dove into Dvorak’s Cello Concerto and woke up playing the last notes of Bloch’s Prayer From Jewish Life, hearing Marta’s approving, ‘Now that was something!’"
