Critics Around the World Say:

“I had heard of different similar organizations… All of these things are so often promised, but so
seldom seen. iPalpiti has done it for me and I shall always remember that; therefore, I consider that it
is vital for young musicians and for saving classical music.”

– Alexandru Tomescu, Concert violinist, State Artist of Romania

“iPalpiti has become part of my life. And a huge part. iPalpiti is a real family. Its unique. …The time
with Dr. Schmieder – both in rehearsal/performance and out, the things I’ve learnt – and the
inspiration is impossible to measure…”

– Jacob Shaw/ Cellist UK-Denmark
Founder/Director, Scandinavian Cello School.
