'La Magia di Vivere' is a work written in one of those moments of epiphany, when we realize the miracle of simply being alive; and we remember how important it is to enjoy each of our days to the fullest – and value what really matters”, said Schejtman about his recent masterpieceLISTEN TO LA MAGIA DI VIVERE
