16th Annual iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates

July 11-28, 2013 Encinitas – Beverly Hills – Los Angeles
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)
