Gordon Getty honored for his unique cultural commitment

In an emotional laudation, star violinist Daniel Hope honored the American patron of culture and composer Gordon Getty: “Have you ever seen a person cry – because he listened to the music? One of these people, so sensitive, so devoted, so completely dissolved in sound?” His love belongs to classical music and, in addition, he has supported young artists and cultural institutions worldwide for decades. Daniel Hope played with Jacques Ammon Getty’s piece “The Fiddler of Ballykeel” that evening.
