  • Year 4-d ago, happened to be at the concert authority and was amazed and totally impressed. A small, old cathedral with acoustics and sound pressure is astounding. It creates such a dive and musical pressure that it seems that every droplet of water rings in your body. His wife managed to make a deep dive and she cry of admiration probably. This time in 2017, this did not happen, unfortunately. Were friends, were unable to dive and stay within yourself, also very much depends, as it turned out who plays and most importantly, that plays. This time played women's hands and works were, for me, not really. Acoustic pressure was not enough, only a couple of points left on the desired wave for davlenijuNo wine ️ I am not upset and if I in Tallinn again, and the 3-th time I go again, because this is my history of communication with the authority in Tallinn and it may not be the same every time, it is different and that she is beautiful and is not. Good luck to everyone!
