"Beyond impeccable musicianship and creative artistry, Maestro Narbona has a near-miraculous ability to combine, to put together, to synthesize.
I have watched in awe and delight as he has brought together the skills and talents of singers, instrumentalists, and all those other invisible yet indispensable heroes who make a performance possible.
Both Saaremaa and the world are a richer, brighter, more beautiful place thanks to him."
- V. Kioulaphides, composer -
