• “iPalpiti’s strings were completely unified and opulent… absolutely bloomed… delivering a deep, rich bass in a movement from a C.P.E. Bach “Hamburg” Sinfonia in A, floating almost Stokowski-like in pater J.S. Bach’s “Air” with terrific control of dynamics. Schmieder then presided over a lovingly conducted and played rendition of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater in a period-performance clarity and luscious modern-instrument tone.”Rick Ginell, Classical Voice North America, 7/24/2014
  • “A dazzling international chamber orchestra…
    Eduard Schmieder’s art is all about communicating emotional energy through glorious sound.”Rick Schultz, Los Angeles Times, 7/27/2014
  • “This was an invigorating world-class performance by young players with technique to burn and a palpable desire to live every note.”Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
  • “iPalpiti demonstrated an almost uncanny unanimity of sound and vibrato… It was especially remarkable to hear such a wide variety of individual tones emerge and then slip back into those fabulous unisons…”The Strad (concert review at Carnegie Zankel Hall, New York)
  • “…rich sonorities audibly took the audience’s breath away…”STRINGS Magazine
  • “Exhilaration, thrills, and awe conquer audiences…. These are the stock in trade of Young [iPalpiti] Artists International.”Los Angeles Times
  • “Eduard Schmieder transforms young professional players of his iPalpiti orchestra into tomorrow’s first-rank musicians.”The Strad, London
