The music is beautiful, and I loved it all. It's been a pleasure working with you on this project!
So very happy to hear from the composer of that thrilling and intriguing and beautiful music sketching the life and mastery of Vincent Van Gogh. This new ballet of Van Gogh was brilliant. It was an amazing accomplishment indeed.
I have been listening to your music from ballet Van Gogh and becoming more enchanted by the minute. Thank you very much!
Scene from ballet Van Gogh Salvation on Art - this is awesome music.
Irena, your music is magical. I listen and enjoy!!!!!

Your play "Merry nonsense or vinaigrette for young and old"
The history of the Turtles, one might say, is a model of the world and a philosophical understanding of our life.
And I am sure that your clever and thoughtful play about the Turtle will find the same smart and subtle director and audience..
I just read your story about the Turtle. What can I say! She is now my favorite! Wonderful, good story!
Last night I read your fairy tale "I love you Cats". From the first lines of the adventure of the cat Horatio, I was captured. The adventure and magic in this tale speak of important values. For me, this is very valuable in modern dramaturgy! In general, I read it in one breath! You write great!
Dear Irena! Your play "Kharms and Cats" excited me. You managed to tell about the time, about the tragedy of a wonderful writer and person. Thank you! And all the best to you!
