I've just had a wonderful week in Berlin doing concerts as part of the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Hochscülen Wettbewerb. What an incredible standard of musicianship from all involved. A real joy to be part of. The NRW ORCHESTER ZENTRUM were absolutely fantastic, and delivered 2 amazing, spirited concerts which were very well received. Berlin, as ever, was an inspiring city. One really feels the history there.
