This is a young musician of immense talent… Feher has something that is hard to define, an ability to connect with his players… it was breathtaking.

The Record

Sparkling music… conducted perfectly by the energetic and musical baton of the young conductor Andrei Feher.

Res Musica

It was nourishing for the heart and the spirit to see [Feher] conduct. He seemed as a dancer who is completely inspired, strong, agile, passionate and yet completely in control.
