Die Akademische Philharmonie Heidelberg, Liv Migdal und ich haben eine wunderbare, anstrengende, intensive und spannende China-Tournee hinter uns gebracht. Über die letzten Tage habe ich einige Eindrücke gepostet und möchte allen, die an der Reise beteiligt waren, von Herzen danken. Die Konzerte waren eine große Freude und wie immer war es hochinteressant zu sehen, wie rasant sich dieses Land entwickelt. Nur ein Wermutstropfen bleibt, denn das letzte Konzert der Tournee in Shanghai war gleichzeitig das letzte für unsere Konzertmeisterin Eva Gaertner. Vielen Dank für alles, was du für das Orchester getan hast!

The Akademische Philharmonie, Liv Migdal and I are back from a wonderful, exhausting, intense and exciting tour through China. Over the last days I posted some impressions and I want to thank everyone, who was involved in the tour, by heart. The concerts have been an enormous pleasure and as always it was highly interesting to see how enormously fast this country is developing. There is only one sad thing and this is, that the final concert in Shanghai was also the last concert of our concertmaster Eva Gaertner. Thank you for everything you've done for the orchestra.
