Stas Sagdeyev leaving for Switzerland

Hi everybody!

I always wanted to have my own website, you know... And it may seem strange enough that I finally decided to open it while there are so many changes going on in my life.

Yes, I must admit (and some of you know about it) that I've been working lately on something completely different and that is what should've become the first thing to be posted on my website. However, things changed and I left for Switzerland today to... go back, to do the thing I started much earlier (yes, those of you who remember, this is about the viola playing).

Then I thought, like, why not have a website where I could place anything I want and if some people are interested they just enjoy it? And I don't care if it's cool or not to have some kind of a public diary or blog 'cause I just know that those who find it interesting will read it and the others will just ignore it. That suits me quite well. And after all... believe me, there's no way I'm going to forget the things started with Sasha Vitkovskiy after working together in the FFAD in Odessa project, so, not sure how soon but the new material will appear on this website for sure (I mean, not only "the diary" thing).

Among this mixture of feellings I experience (and I have to say I'm still a bit... "not believing" that I'm back to Switzerland 'cause about two weeks ago a had no idea I would be) It's a little hard to realise that the life will never be the same, especially when you know you'll have to leave certain things behind. On the other hand, I feel excited about the chance to meet my Swiss friends again (Max, Markus, Anne-Catherine, Sarah, Joel and others).

Anyway, let it be the beginning of something new, something different - a brand new day.

Go back
