Absolutely outstanding video by ' wirebirds' posted above by sturgess. The best i've seen with no noticable ' camera shake ' - almost as if shot on a sturdy tripod .Excellent sound too
Well done and thanks
Leonard's work resonates

This dia show is fantastic!
My thanks and appreciation go to all the contributing photographers for capturing so many magical moments at the Helsinki concert. I made a note of 16 photos with special resonance and will go back to see them again.

ps. Thanks Jarkko, for the "slideshow" reminder. I had forgotten.

Thanks for the newspaper scans Jarkko. I can't understand/read of course but I love the pictures.
I've become so used to reading news articles online - and it is nice to see an actual newspaper article.

Some video uploaded by RGavrilin - Thanks Roman!

As I already told, the concert in Hesinki was touching and unforgettable! Even our awful climate was not able to disturb it!
We are thankful for Leonard to play Miracle in all of the concerts that we have attended in Europe and still wish to hear it in Bucharest! He promised us already in Ghent and he kept his promise...
Dino was not in Helsinki, but we hope Dino will be back on stage at least in spring!! We believe there is enough space for a good violinist and DINO, the maestro of wind instruments, making the music enjoyable!!
Thanks for Leonard and the band for the unforgettable evening in Helsinki!
