“Must a performer himself be socially or socially committed to charity, or is his artistry in itself enough of a commitment?” thus opens the www.cuttingedge.be review of Leif Ove’s Brussels concerts with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra which applauded the fact that the musicians had also invited local children with impaired hearing to join them in a dedicated workshop before the concert – “a new world to open their eyes and ears. They also had a place of honor in the audience and their applause in sign language, which amused and was answered by the whole orchestra, provided the proverbial heartwarming note of the evening.””Qualitatively, the performance did not need anything to boost its prowess, although it is always good when the elite aura of the concert hall is puncture …  In all respects a concert that deserves a standing ovation. And so it did.”
