Greetings of Oldřich Lomecký, Mayor of Prague 1, to Festival Brikcius

Vážení milovníci krásné hudby a hudebních nástrojů,

  je mi ctí, že jsem mohl převzít záštitu nad Festivalem Brikcius 2013, jenž je holdem vynikajícím skladatelům a violoncellistům i violoncellu samotnému - nástroji, který více než jiné dokáže vyjádřit pocity skladatele i samotného interpreta a jehož vztah s nimi bohatě překračuje partnerství hudebníka a "pouhého" cella. Výstižně to vyjádřil Mischa Maisky: Moje cello, to byla láska na první pohled, první zvuk i první dotek. Nikdy se s ním nerozloučím.
