The main attraction was Nikolas Walentin. Stunningly dressed in white dinner jacket and shiny patent leather shoes and looking perhaps like James Bond at the casino. But he showed a different sensitivity, a true poet with a flair for creating the nuances, which allows classical music to come alive.
For over fifty minutes he let his violin guide the audience through every possible combination of dream-like, aggressive, desperate, fragile or melancholic questions and answers. The starting point was a broad, quivering violin tone with volume and a dark glow, but as the drama continued he made his sound slimmer and more clear ending in an energetic and brilliant style.
