Alberto Brazzale

When Julius Berger plays is like he was praying: there is an inner research for something which is beyond the notes, there is the longing to catch the spirit of music, which means the spirit of life. With him is not just a matter of having a beautiful sound or the best bowing or having the right articulation: first of all is a matter of searching the deepest meaning into every note and every pause. Before anything else this is what he has thought to me: to dare to go beyond in music, as well as in life.

And this is why I will always be thankful to him for all my life long.
