"Sergey Kuznetsov is one of those exceptionally outstanding musicians. His fields of expertise, besides piano, include chamber music, and music industry itself, in putting together and organizing a publication of information for all musicians that lists concerts, festivals, competitions and master classes worldwide, in essence consolidating pertinent information for musicians and non-musicians, something direly needed and never before done."
