Headline- 'Exzellente show von virtuosem Geiger Kutik'
Review- 'The young soloist presented a violin show par excellence with his breathtaking virtuosity, fine dymanic shadings, as well as melodic and rhythmic agility. After the final movement, he received,-now as appropriate- thunderous final applause'

William Lobkowicz and Herbert Burtis
When I was in Prague visiting Will Lobkowicz and his family last spring, I brought up the possibility of having Yevgeny perform in the magnificent Lobkowicz Palace which sits atop the butte which is Prague Castle in the center of the city. Will is the thirteenth Prince Lobkowicz. His family has been involved sponsoring musicians for several hundred years, including Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven.
The Lobkowicz Palace is the light colored building on the right and in the center of the photograph.
Will and I discussed the idea of having Yevgeny perform there and I told him that the Ferris Burtis Music Foundation would help fund Yevgeny's visit. This is the sort of thing the Foundation does with the five extraordinary young musicians we are helping at the moment.
