I have known Felix for many years now and I'm proud to see how he has developed his talent.
Felix is a very good conductor with a strong musicality and skill.
He will have a bright future ahead of him.

-Paavo Järvi-

We were looking for a young conductor of great talent and international experience and reputation, a leader able to continue and develop the excellency and quality of the Filarmonica TRT. And we were looking for someone on whom we can count, in whom we can believe and with whom we can build a long-term relation in order to continue this path of growth and success of the orchestra. The musicians have found all this in Felix, so we are extremely delighted that he accepted, and looking forward to a great artistic future.
