It’s the first time I’ve seen Ailen Pritchin, who is a Russian violinist of Vietnamese descent, since we first met five years ago after he won the first prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians held in Kurashiki, Japan. The event included competitions in piano, violin and cello for musicians under the age of 18 from around the world, and served as a prelude for the world’s leading International Tchaikovsky Competition. Pritchin was attending the Music High School of Saint Petersburg at the time, while his sister Yana attended the Vietnamese and Chinese university in the city. He is now a handsome man with visible Russian and Vietnamese traits.

If you judge a man’s outward appearance, you’ll lead a miserable life.” Jumping onto her granny’s bed in her underwear, Nga hugged her tightly. “I think otherwise, granny. If I marry a serious but penniless guy, won’t I be poor my whole life? Anyway, why do you think that he looked serious?” “Because he was handsome. What’s more, he came here on an … [Read more...] about Gone the Scholar’s Day
