Estate of Henryk Szeryng – Official Web Site

 

« More often than not, especially in a very large hall, I can feel exactly the very minute
when even several thousands of listeners are really with me. That’s the moment when you feel that you are not airborne, but that you are music borne – it’s a wonderful sensation.  »

« I consider music as the noblest language, bringing comfort, joy,  inspiration and peace to mankind.
I think that it is vital that peace be preserved, and if music can help – then let’s have music! »

« Music is a true bridge between human beings. My cultural mission is to bear
a musical message for better relations between individuals and nations »

Henryk Szeryng
