The concert of the 'Milano String Quartet' at the Bellapais
Festival received a long and standing ovation. The Cellist of
the Quartet, Luca De Muro stated his opinion to the media
members as; We gave concerts almost everywhere, but Bellapais
is different. The Abbey is alive with its architecture,
illuminations, acoustics, with its village and hospitable
villagers, pubs and restaurants. Here in this village history is
alive, and Bellapais is a common treasure for all of us. Playing
at Bellapais is a privilege and honour for all musicians. We
will not forget this magnificent evening and the superb audience
Organizing a festival naturally takes long tiresome months but
its worth receiving such messages. By means of exceptional
supports and contributions, Bellapais and the festival has an
outstanding piano. It's a jewel with "a velvet sound", it is a
Bösendorfer. Bellapais is a truly distinguished concert hall at
international standards with its superb accoustics and with its
Welcome to A unique experience at the breathtaking atmosphere
of the Bellapais Abbey, which unites music lovers of Northern
Cyprus with our guests visiting Northern Cyprus to share and
enjoy the universal language of classical music from 17 May
onwards for four weeks, this year and every year.

Mehmet Ali Alabora : "Bellapais Klasik Müzik Festivali'ne arkadaşım ve klasik müzikle ilgili
yaptığım her şeydeki ortağım Emir Gamsızoğlu'nun Chen Halevi ile verdiği
konser dahilinde katıldım. Bir sonraki yıl ben de mutlaka aktif olarak
bir şey yapmak isterim. Hem Taner ailesinin kendilerini bu işe vakf
etmişliği, hem de Kuzey Kıbrıs'taki klasik müzik heyecanı beni çok
etkiledi. Emeği geçen herkesi tekrar tekrar kutluyorum."
