Film maker and director Tony Palmer was similarly enthusiastic about the project:
The concert (and the evening) was/were fun. I enjoyed myself and loved the Polacca. Do keep me informed of progress, and the 15th is definitely in the diary.
There was coverage on Polish Radio and Agnieszka Gradzewicz of the Polish business magazine Metropolia wrote to thank me for the enjoyable event:
It was a real pleasure to attend the event. I look forward to an opportunity to see
