The Tatarstan orchestra has really transformed for the better as it radiates quality now! The musicians are truly enthusiastic about their work which serves to show that the orchestral conductor has achieved a lot. I am glad Sladovsky was invited to work in Kazan. Only few people can draw people in packs to the Hall and I believe he is that type of person. Besides, I believe the local audience is very responsive. I don’t judge the city by its gorgeous look as appearances can be deceiving but there are a great number of people gasping for high art here so this festival I think gives Kazan a great chance.
