I wanted to create a warm gathering for young violonists. Indeed, being in the field of classical music, especially as a violonist, can be very harsh emotionally, and in my own musical journey I know that I would have gained from more kind and warmhearted support. As artists we are not only judged on what we do, but also on what we are, since artistic expression draws considerably on our innermost self.
Today, young musicians are sorely in need of moments like this, where they get to prepare for a high-level competition held in a sharing and supportive spirit.
