"An interesting mixture of delicious chocolate, changing light and music, which created a holistic and unforgettable experience, not at least thanks to the Operetta's perfect acoustic and the almost surreal clearness of each tone. Eleven young musicians, sitting in a glass cube above the audience, played an interesting repertoire, whose movements were marked by a change of the hall light and accompanied by the consumption of a certain piece of chocolate - divine tastes, wonderful berries, liquer, arolla pine aroma, combined with honey and chocolate...The programme, consisting of Onslow, Pärt, Wagner and Piazzolla, was presented by the young European musicians of the Ensemble PURPUR and indulged all senses of the audience, which experienced an extraordinary musical evening."
