"Dear Andreas<br><br>Your music has allowed me the miracle of the musical journey for a decade now and I hope you live forever. Thanks to you and Ryan, another American friend here in New York City whom you know, I have picked up the harp and now take lessons with a brilliant Bulgarian harpist. I haven't fully converted her, but I'm working on it. It has dawned on me that I need to stop referring you to her as "this great harpist" that I strive to emulate, but more of an underlying musical force of which the harp is one of many instruments you paint with. I've had the pleasure of meeting you twice and hope I see you again here in the big apple. Thank you again for it all.<br><br>-David Cope "
