He has been celebrated internationally by press and audiences alike for his stunningly brilliant and intense playing. We launched QCHAMBERSTREAM.com in Hannover, Germany, in early April to great success. I am now greatly looking forward to the first concert from Los Angeles.”
Bernhard Fleischer, leading producer of concert broadcasts, commented:
“It has paid off to keep both the musical and the audio-visual quality as high as is possible, and we are seeing that viewer’s remain with us for a long period of time. The next stream from Los Angeles will showcase a completely different quality chamber, both visually and acoustically. We are proud and grateful our longstanding technology partner in the USA, Gravity Media, has welcomed us into their home in California for a fantastic performance with Judicaël Perroy. Paul Fenkart of BFMI USA will direct.”
