The Duel of the Violins in London
This is what the violinist Liviu Prunaru told us right after the concert:
'After having finished the performance, when I had to announce the encore, I spoke Romanian. So, as you could tell, I felt like home. They gave us such a warm and beautiful greeting that we felt as if we were on a Romanian stage. Really beautiful! It was a beautiful evening, at least for us. They requested two encores. The audience here really enjoyed the concert a lot. We already are on the fourth edition and I think it's time for foreign audiences to see not only these two extraordinary violins, but also some pretty sharp Romanians. I think it's time to start performing this duel outside our country, too.'
