“They gave the feeling of a sound close to original ideas, only here these works were played on modern instruments. With great pleasure I noticed the brilliant string soloists. … The Chopin Piano Concerto in E minor was splendid. The Romanza part very beautiful with excellent cooperation between the orchestra and the piano soloist, who also conducted. The strings sounded wonderful. … [It was to a] completely full house.”
—Henning Høholt, Kultur Kompasset, Vilnius, Lithuania,
