With viola player Timothy Ridout and cellist Jacob Shaw, two excellent British musicians proudly took part in Alpenarte’s European Journey, representing their country in this exciting international ride through a border-less music world. Both musicians are extremely worried about possible consequences of the Brexit for musicians, British ones as well as those from other nations. Both gave committed statements to the European spirit of their music making before their performances. « It’s hard to imagine how all this will work », Jacob Shaw said, « and I have big fears for the future ».

« Music has no borders », Timothy Ridout told the audience, « and this should remain like this ».
