Meet Ludovic at these Special Events
Conductor Dinner on Jan 28
Classical Conversations on Jan 30

Her gifts are at a level so removed from the rest of us that all we can do is feel the appropriate awe and then wonder on the mysteries of nature.

The New York Times
Since her debut with the New York Philharmonic at the age of eight, Sarah Chang has become one of the most celebrated violinists of our time. She brings her emotional depth to Dvořák’s Violin Concerto. Frogs, dragonflies and hens cavort through Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen Suite, an ode to Mother Nature. Guest conductor Ludovic Morlot pays homage to his French heritage with one of Debussy’s most beloved orchestral works, Ibéria. Debussy offers vivid impressions of Spanish streets, festival mornings, and “the fragrance of the night.”

 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.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 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 byHerald Tribune

 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.
