A pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs, in whatever combination.

The New York Times

Hear Bartók’s music alongside his idol Beethoven in a virtuosic showcase led by Keith Lockhart, longtime Boston Pops conductor and Artistic Director of the Brevard Music Festival. The program features critically-acclaimed soloist Jeremy Denk,“a pianist you want to hear no matter what he performs,” according to The New York Times, in Beethoven’s famously challenging Piano Concerto No. 4. The evening opens with Kodály’s Dances of Galánta, a nostalgic trip down memory lane to the composer’s childhood in a Slovakian town. Bartók’s last completed work, the iconic and exhilarating Concerto for Orchestra, will provide a breathtaking end to this dazzling program.

 There's no doubt, audiences are thrilled by the Sarasota Orchestra's new music director, Anu Tali. She's brought an intense energy from the orchestra in previous performances and we found this yet again in a downright thrill ride of an encounter...  

Written byHerald Tribune

 Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 Every section and soloist within the orchestra played their role with strength and beauty; every tree proud and tall. Tali served as an excellent guide leading the forces with assured confidence. The overall sound was lush and, yes, intense just where it needed to be.

 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.

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

 Tali conveyed a clear vision for the dramatic outline of this symphony, carefully pacing the darker, searching character of the music with pastoral conversations among voices in the orchestra.  

Written byThe Observer

 If you haven’t seen Tali yet, this will be a great introduction to the skyrocketing conductor who’s quickly becoming a household name around the world. You’ll see why we feel we’re lucky to have her here.
