[Roman is] a cellist of extraordinary technical and musical gifts.

Porter’s virtuosity puts her right up there with the finest interpreters of her generation.

Chicago Classical Review
Spend an evening with musical royalty. Sir William Walton’s Symphony No. 1, long viewed as one of the greatest symphonies of the modern age, is an emotionally searing, melodic commentary on love lost. Get acquainted with two emerging stars, violinist Simone Porter and cellist Joshua Roman, as they shine in one of the most rapturous concertos ever composed. Berlioz’s Rob Roy Overture, based on Sir Walter Scott’s novel, opens this program of high drama and heartfelt emotion led by world-renowned British conductor Bramwell Tovey.

 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 byThe Observer

 Andrew Lane, the Orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, knows how to program a winning event and this concert had something for everyone. It also brought in a whole new audience that seemed dazzled by the performances.  

Written byThe Observer

 The Sarasota Orchestra played a program this past weekend filled with so much color, it was like visiting the Louvre.  

Written byHerald Tribune

 The performance... was exceptional, bringing new and stunning sonorities from a larger than usual Sarasota Orchestra under the dynamic leadership of Anu Tali.
