Bernitt recieved in 2012 a Soloist Diploma from The Royal Danish Academy of Music.
"At his Soloist Debut Recital Bernitt presented himself as a thoroughly musical artist and fiddler. With versatility and power he communicated his very own personal concert-vision: A total experience which stretches far beyond the boundaries of a traditional classical concert.
Bernitt had created a night of celebration, working alongside a classical symphony orchestra, folk and rock bands, and playing with cross-over, intricate lighting, dance, and his own compositions. All these elements came together around himself, who effortlessly travels between genres.
It is impressive that Bernitt was able to maintain such a high level of virtuosity in all the classical pieces. More than 60 musicians on stage are evidence of Bernitt’s entrepreneurial and networking capabilities, and it is fantastic that he is able to manage an event of such scale.
The concert leaves us with an impression of a true artist with many facets."
