For weise men to remeber, for unaware to learn, for politicians as a warning.

n search of goodness and perfection man created violin, no other instrument, literaly and figuratively, is so close to players’ heart. (...) It is said sometimes, that a man, who never experienced pain, is not able to fully appreciate joy of music. Violin is also the best to express sadness, sorrow and this exceptional laughter – through tears. It is not coincidence, that this instrument is so beloved by Jews and Poles, two probably the most melancholic nations of the world.“ - excerpt from the performance.
