iPalpiti Orchestral Ensemble of International Laureates/Eduard Schmieder, Music Director & Conductor

“… Eduard Schmieder, the founder of the admirable iPalpiti, believes that music remains a functional universal language…

Schmieder is an authoritative conductor. A tall and serious Russian of the old school, he goes in for intense expression and dug-in string sonorities…” – Los Angeles Times, Mark Swed, Chief Music Critic (2010)
