NPR All Things Considered

The sparkly sheen of Mozart and the profound depth of Mahler come together in one program. Among the most technically demanding of Mozart’s concerti, his Piano Concerto No. 21 was pronounced “astonishingly difficult” by the composer’s own father. Alongside this Classical treasure is Gustav Mahler’s spellbinding post-Romantic Titan Symphony. Delight in the sounds of nature, and snippets of urban life like street bands and klezmer, as you revel in Mahler’s expansive and fascinating commentary on the human condition. Israeli pianist Shai Wosner and American-Israeli conductor Steven Sloane join forces with Sarasota Orchestra for a program contrasting two of history’s greatest composers.

Written byHerald Tribune

 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.  

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.
