First live stream recital

Since public concerts are still not allowed in most of Europe, David Makhmudov decided to meet with his public online and gave his first live stream recital.

Concert at the Chapelle du Sacré-Coeur de Lindthout

The highly anticipated concert with the "Nuove Musiche" symphony orchestra was cancelled due to the current circumstances. However, for David Makhmudov and his young pupils, it was very important to meet and share the work they have accomplished with their families and friends.
