SUYEON´S GREETINGS FROM THE TOUR

It was my greatest pleasure to return to Denmark - as alumni of the festival - the last time I was in Denmark must have been five years ago. It is funny how all memories flood back when you return to a certain environment- and this tour did just that for me! An absolute joy to work with 3 incredible musicians and to tour this beautiful country and Sweden as well…and as every musician will know, getting to play a program 5 times in a row is quite a luxury: you get to know the pieces inside out and furthermore every concert includes more and more risk-taking and understanding, not only of the music, but of the colleagues that you are playing with.

Many heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers involved and to those that spent so much time organizing this special event! Hope to be back soon.
