Couple of pickies of Nafis Umerkulova, a little piano wrangler I met when I shot the classical concerts taking place these holiday season. A minute Uzbek taming a grand Steinbeck certainly is a sight to behold and you know me - I tend to sit, alone, in the front line and pretend there's just music and me and the face of the people playing. Half of what I understand of sounds is what I interpret from teh expression of the musicians :) She studies in Glasgow with Katarina Majcen and she was super nice to me, when I joined the friends/family of the stars for drinks afterwards and would of course just sit and observe quietly.

I sat in the front row at a Nafis Umerkulova concert at the Steinway Hall in London. I filmed her encore and uploaded it to You Tube. She is now studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Her tutor is Deniz Gelenbe. I like your pictures of Nafis. Best wishes Michael notthatone Parkinson.
