“Often, when one attends and performs at various world-class classical concerts, it is the building, the hall, the acoustics that stays most vividly in one's mind. But we'll remember this festival as one of the “warmest” musical events, where every artist was whole-heartedly welcomed. I was very honored at being given the opportunity to perform with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, replacing maestro Māris Jansons in his “second home” – it's a real honor,” said Susanna Mälkki.
