Fanfare Magazine- Khachaturian/Glazunov Concertos
"Quint’s performances of the Glazunov and the Khachaturian deserve easily to advance to somewhere near the top of the list, and the stunning sound of this SACD recording does wonders for the very colorful, if not gaudy, orchestrations of these scores: Strongly recommended."
BBC-Glazunov/Khachaturianv Violin Concertos
Quint’s tonal opulence, generously inflected with subtle portamentos, sound like a throwback to the glory days of Fritz Kreisler. Quint is certainly no slouch when it comes to moving the music forward, yet he always finds time to give his phrasing an affectionate lilt, … a rich, ruby port to set besides Heifetz’s sparkling effervescence.

American Record Guide
"Quint really “gets” the Glazounov better than just about any violinist I’ve heard in it. He embraces it with an expansive, rich, beautiful violin tone—the kind it’s supposed to have but doesn’t always get. I’ve never quite understood why so many recordings of this work miss the mark… All it seems to require is a straightforward romantic approach of the exact same kind the Tchaikovsky concerto calls for. And that’s what Quint gives it, ably supported by Mr Sloane and the Bochum Symphony"
Review of albume Glazunov, Khachaturian: Violin concertos: "The soloist Philippe Quint — Russian despite his name — delivers the most coherent account I have encountered since Oistrakh’s. And he’s pretty hot in the Glazunov, too — passionate, at times, to the point of recklessness...This is Michelin-starred Russian borscht."
With his golden tone and rock-solid technique, Quint gives a commandingly articulate display of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
In a recording made at the Teldex Studio, Berlin, Russian-born violinist Philippe Quint performs a series of pieces specifically related to his musical biography, a collection of songs and opera arias that serve as “associations, reflections, and memories that made me remember very significant people and moments in my life.”

The violinist Philippe Quint is branching out—he’s acting in a new film, directed by David Grubin, portraying a young musician rebelling against his conservative background by abandoning Lincoln Center for the more innovative downtown scene.
David Grubin’s first feature film will prove quite the experience for musicians, music lovers and, well, pretty much everyone else.
There's more to Lubitsch than a touch; there's also a universe, a human arrangement through which the touch ushers us. This universe might be slightly more reproducible than the touch.
Featuring plenty of musical performances ranging from classical to pop/rock, the film is a fine showcase for Quint’s superb playing and McKay’s charmingly eccentric vocal stylings.
He may be a force in the concert hall, but Russian violinist Philippe Quint is out to prove he can be just as moving on the big screen.

Quint is self-effacing about his limited acting experience, noting that he took lessons with the acting coach Sondra Lee, who has tutored Jane Fonda and rocker Joan Jett, among others.
Orange County Register
Russian-born, trained there and at Juilliard, Quint is a thinking man's virtuoso, given to off-beat repertoire but not averse to pulling out the old showpieces. His "Tzigane" was marked by fierceness of phrase as well as a genuine zest.
Prieto and Quint take plenty of risks, conjuring the romantic fire at the core of these works.
