One year after the Jubilee concert of 25 years of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Kazakhstan, two Jazz musicians from Switzerland, Marco Santilli and Fulvio Maras, were back in Kazakhstan. Together with the Kazakh State String Quartet, the group performed an extraordinary encounter of classical music and jazz. 

The program consisted of the String Quartet KV589 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Italian Serenade by Hugo Wolf and jazz compositions by Marco Santilli himself. The audience in the close to sold-out Philharmonic Hall in Almaty very much enjoyed this novel music and honored the musicians for their brilliant performance with roaring applause during and a standing ovation at the conclusion of the concert.
