Philippe returned to the Santa Barbara Symphony
Mendelssohn Concerto Performances Reviewed in:
Edhat Santa Barbara: "I personally thought Yehudi Menuhin was channeling through Philippe Quint during his amazing performance....I began to cry...It just does not get any better than that!"
Performing Arts Review: "Quint’s intensely personal approach to the cadenza at the end of the first movement confirmed his appropriately meditative approach to the work as a whole; a sincere understanding of the many years of angst involved in the concerto’s creation."
Santa Barbara Independent: "...Quint dove assuredly into the ultra-familiar strains of the opening theme and rose to the score’s challenges and varying heat level of pyrotechnics and romantic gymnastics."
