“The experience with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe was thoroughly inspiring. The atmosphere in this group is incredibly warm and relaxed. Playing with the COE was a great feeling and so many things made it special – the sound, the unity, the drive and incredible energy. I admire all the members of this orchestra for their ability to hear and feel music the way they do. My private lesson with Mats Zetterqvist was very inspiring – he made me aware of so many musical aspects that I hadn’t thought about. I hope to have the chance to work with him again in the future and to learn from his experience and understanding of music. For me, every moment spent there was enjoyable.”
