"The string sound is just gorgeous, big and pliant and vibrant, and the ensemble level defies all expectations — every note, every attack, precisely in the right place. Incisive, committed playing brought every measure to life."
Melinda Bargreen, Seattle Times

"[Murray Perahia’s] gestures are flowing and demonstrative, and they brought forth a performance with the same shapeliness and zest that characterized the concertos. The orchestra produced a lovely sound, section for section, and often played with the cohesiveness of a chamber ensemble."
Alan Koznin, New York Times
