BAKHYTZHAN MUSSAKHAJAYEVA, ORCHESTRA’S CHIEF CONDUCTOR:
- I'm nervous, because it's not easy to create interaction between the orchestra and the audience, so that the listener could enjoy the accompaniment, solo numbers and the concert in general. We need to convey all the purity of these genius works that have been sparkling for centuries and performed by the whole world.
