Critics Around the World Say:

“The Potential and the Background of musicians from the entire globe forms the seed of unique concert experiences for the artists as well for the public. There is a story behind each musician coming to join iPalpiti. It is not only a matter of high quality but also personality of the artists which are very wisely chosen by the artistic director.”

– Peter Rainer/Concertmaster (Germany)

“iPalpiti is a unique festival, giving stage to its outstanding participants both in orchestral ensemble setting and chamber music. The consolidation and unity of the young players,
both musically and personally, creates an incomparable rehearsal atmosphere which produces unforgettable concerts.”

– Tibi Cziger/Clarinet (Israel)

“iPalpiti festival is unique. It transforms musicians into messengers who unveil and deliver invisible treasure of classical music (that hidden behind the printed notes) to the hearts of listeners. Without Maestro Schmieder transformation would be impossible, he possesses a magical emotional energy and ability to generate and liberate our spirits to express what we had not known or experienced before. Naturally, concerts become an outstanding celebration.”

– Vladimir Dyo/Violinist (USA)
