Lynn Harrell, Cello Soloist
Dvořák: Symphony No. 8 in G Major, Op. 88

The audience rewarded him with the cheers reserved for heroes…and he deserved it. --- New York Times

Itamar Zorman, Violin Soloist
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op. 92
Dvořák: Violin Concerto in A Major, Op. 53
It looks like the succession to Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman and Shlomo Mintz is guaranteed…The inevitability with which Zorman heads for the climaxes shows artistic mastery. --- Morganweb.de

Pascal Rogé, Piano Soloist
Schumann: Symphony No. 4 in D Minor, Op. 120
Saint-Saëns: Piano Concerto No. 5 in F Major, Op. 103 The Egyptian
… the rarely-performed Fifth Piano Concerto, called ‘Egyptian', by Camille Saint-Saëns. Its main protagonist Pascal Rogé met his task with absolute surety and striking personal input. He engaged the audience mainly with his colourful range of attacks and the detailed elaboration of his overall conception, but the acoustical balance and precision in ensemble playing between the piano and the orchestra also deserve recognition.– Deniky Bohemia
