Brazilian composer Mozart Camargo Guarnieri spices his Festive Overture with flavors of South America. Superstar violinist Blake Pouliot is featured in Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. The program concludes with Mussorgsky's orchestral showpiece, Pictures at an Exhibition, showcasing ten vivid, short musical interludes that were influenced by works of art. The final movement, "The Great Gate of Kiev," stands as one of the most majestic moments in orchestral music.

 The Sarasota Orchestra was brimming with bubbling energy...  

Written byHerald Tribune

 A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.  

Written byThe Observer
