“For us, the real winner of the evening was the rarely-heard Piano Quartet in B-flat, Opus 41. Pianist James Winn, violinist Massimo Quarta, violist Daniel Avshalomov and cellist Julie Albers were riveting as they captured the big, lush, romanticism of this wonderful work. Yes, it is a showstopper-of-a-piece. But Saint-Saëns constructed it brilliantly by weaving the same tuneful chorale theme throughout each movement. The music and the performance made me rush home to order a recording for my collection.”

“Artistic Director Bruno Giuranna has an admirable way of building programs, contrasting unfamiliar works with popular blockbusters from the chamber music lexicon.”

“Cesar Franck’s glorious quintet brought the concert to a triumphant conclusion, led by Derek Han,
who had Franck’s extravagant 19th-century style under perfect control.”

“Sarasota’s La Musica International Chamber Music Festival has a track record of so many stellar
performances and this second concert of the 2010 La Musica series was simply more of the same.”

“Han rarely fails to amaze with his tasteful perfection.”
