Thank you so much for playing on Monday. It was really wonderful and all the guests commented on how great it was.

Many thanks for your excellent performance last night. I had not heard that particular piece before—it’s great and thanks for letting me hear it played so well. I am glad you were able to join us and hope to see and hear you again soon.
