    It's surprising that he is still so young but so matured in his interpretation! I'm looking forward to seeing him further transforming and growing.

    I'm a reader of your blog Akiko-san, since you were kylin-san. Thank you always for important and interesting information of Rafal-san.

    Greeting from Sapporo

    1. Thank you for reading it for long years ♫

      For international readers, kylin was my alias meaning giraffe.
      This giraffe in the small picture is made of lego blocks at Legoland located near Berlin Philharmonic Hall.

  8. Many wishes to Rafal'Dad too ! I don't know why, but this picture of Rafal and his Dad makes me think of Chopin and his father Nicolas... it's just an impression, and it's a compliment! Carmen

  9. I’m also always thankful to his wonderful parents and family members, very honest, sincere, warm-hearted and wise, deeply in love with Rafał’s music and his personality, dedicating themselves to supporting him.

    Wishing you a happy birthday, Rafal!
    It's a joy to be able to witness your artistic development. Listening to your music is a life changing experience (at least to me and probably the viewers of this site, too).
    Very much looking forward to be at your live concert in New York.

    1. "A life changing experience". I can't agree more.

    Happy birthday, Rafal. Probably for you, an incarnated angel, how old (or young) you are is not so important. But I want to congratulate you for a friend of mine, one of those who are most grateful that you were born in this world, making their lives so happy.


    1. (Note) Peko believes Rafał is real Raphael, the archangel, since she attended his recital in Feb. 2009.

  18. Dear Rafał,
    I wish you a happy birthday. I've been knowing you for 4 years now and I have always wished to see you live. I've had few occasions but I could never go. However, I learned 2 days ago that I was going to hear you in France in November, I'm so, so glad!
    I hope all is going well for you, and I want to thank you for every moment you have already offered us.


    1. Congrats, Marine!! I'm very happy for you. (Akiko, sorry not Rafał:))

  19. Ahhh, I hope it's not too late but Happy Birthday to Rafal and wish you another productive year!
