– Concertissimo

Giojoso
David organised and conducted five concerts in Winterthur under the name “Concertissimo”. These concerts were intended to give professional soloists the opportunity to perform concertos in public in advance of their professional performance – a sort of “rehearsal”. What was special about the Concerto Days was that they were rehearsed and performed on a single day with a communal lunch break!
