    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.

    I made use of Classictc several times. It's always been okay. And this time it was no different. The attraction was of excellent standard, a great concert. The Church of Saint Ephraim is a great place for concerts. Just submit the reservation and everything is forwarded easily.

    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!

    Très très beau concert à l’église Saint‐Ephrem, d’une grande simplicité. Trois suites de Bach pour violoncelle, magnifiquement exécutées. Un soliste généreux et très doué. On a même eu droit à un rappel!
