15th Annual iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates

Thursday, July 12 – Sunday, July 29
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)
