Congratulations on such an inspiring edition of your festival. The orchestral evening and the closing two piano recitals were alone worth coming for! The orchestral concert was absolutely splendid, and so were you and the orchestra. I loved the smart idea of programming Alma Deutscher too, she is such a sensation among the twelve-year olds (minus-plus), and it was wonderful to watch all those youngsters excited to see their peer performing on a major stage. They were beaming with pride, and totally immersed in the piece. Here you have it: your future audience!

We had a first-rate Lead Violinist (Jiri Nemecek) who was doing excellent job.

It was a pleasure for Alma to perform with you (and for me listen)!
Guy Deutscher

I particularly enjoyed discovering Amy Beach’s symphony – I wasn’t aware of her work previously… It is always really nice to find wonderful music that you didn’t know was out there, so thank you very much for that!
Jon Roskilly, Trombone, L’anima giusta

It was great for all the orchestral musicians to have the opportunity to play with the wonderful violinist, Alma Deutscher!
Daniel  Herrero, 1st Trumpet, L’anima giusta
