    Dec 2019

    This was one of the most passionate and intense concerts i ever saw. The pianist , Elio Di Tanna plays marvellously several Chopin pieces and the audience applauded him for long 10 minutes. This artist merits to perform also in the most famous music temples around the world. He is talented .Bravo ! Emilio Antonini Trieste Italy

    Elio is a sublime pianist. His interpretation of the works was sympathetic and authentic; he did not impose himself on the music — rather he illuminated it with great skill.

    The performance was breathtaking. Timothée was astounding, the acoustics and the candlelight inside the church made the music that much more enchanting‐ I could feel the cello from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. It was an electric experience.

  • Jeanneke B, Netherlands

    Jan 2019

    The musicians were great! But te accommodation of the church was not that special. Weird decor in the background. Bad, uninviting lighting. The program was changed and to know what the program was you had to buy this for 2 euros. Program information should simply be left for free considering the price of the ticket, in my opinion.

  • Terek B, France

    Such a beautiful venue and magnificent skills by the pianist. Loved every second.

  • Derek M, USA

    Dec 2018

    Great acoustics and outstanding performance. Played three of the six cello suites, which was OK with my wife as she tends to nod off after an hour or so of live classical music :) Look forward to seeing another concert here!

  • Côme C, France

    Oct 2018

    Un vrai ressenti de l’oeuvre, l’artiste maîtrisait et s’appropriait les morceaux… cependant certaines décélérations sur Chopin étaient un peu artificielles selon moi.

    Oct 2018

    Das Konzert war das Geld allemal wert: Ein hervorragender Pianist mit einem guten Programm in einem (nach Abschalten der elektrischen Beleuchtung) angenehmen Ambiente und in einer Kapelle mit passender Größe und wirklich guter Akustik. Die Organisation einschl. der Abwicklung der Bezahlung und der Zusendung der Online‐Tickets war problemlos.

  • Florence P.,

    Oct 2012

    Moins convaincue par Mozart… Virtuosité du pianiste mais à mon goût pâs assez d'âme. En revanche bravo au violoniste. J'ai pu entendu la violoncelliste en début de concert. Il est frai que j'étais du mauvais côté et que je ne pouvais la voir… ce qui gânait mon audition. En revanche bravo à tous 3 Pour Rachmaninoff

    The cellist and pianist were outstanding. Also, the venue has great acoustics.

    Sep 2012

    Pianisten LUCAS var særdeles talentfuld og spillede fantastisk indlevende for os — i alt 4 stykker i alt i ca. 75 min. — vel at mærke uden noder — det kræver sin pianist og megen øvelse. Lucas er en meget tiltalende person, som vi vurderer har megen potentiale indenfor hans store kunst: klaverspillet. vh Per og Lise‐Lotte Busk, Nyborg, Denmark

  • Ruth B., United Kingdom

    May 2012

    Excellent performance of Chopin by Florian Billot, his fingers flew over the keyboard of a lovely sounding piano in a chapel with great acoustics, it was beautiful. Only annoyance for us was that the audience took a while to settle down and make sure that camera and phone 'beeps' were silenced. Late arrivals also created a disturbance which was distracting during the first three pieces.

    薄暗くなった教会祭壇に蝋燭の灯りがともされ、演奏開始。チェロ独奏、自らの指は全くみることなく難解な曲を何曲も演奏で神々しかった。教会が宿泊先の近くでよかったです。

  • Fumi L., France

    Jan 2012

    Couldn't get the pianist's name. However, he was wonderful. I wish they could provide us some info — even just one paper about his profile and the pieces he was going to play. It didn't have to be a full brochure. However, a concert at a small church like this for 27 euros, I believe we are entitled to get a small info on a paper.
