Daniel Migdal, Violinist from Sweden
"Since I have heard the Harnoncourt/COE recording of the Beethoven Symphonies, I have always dreamed of being given a chance to play with this Orchestra. The great level of music-making and the amazing energy and joy of the musicians in the Orchestra was something that I never had come across before. When I was given the opportunity to take part in the COE Academy with Blomstedt/Ax, I naturally did not hesitate for a second. The days with the Orchestra proved to be as fantastic and inspiring as I anticipated. I have rarely enjoyed making music this much ever before! To be in this warm and creative enviroment with wonderful people who all love playing music made this week something I will treasure and keep with me for a very long time.”
