“But it’s French-Canadian mezzo-soprano Julie Boulianne who is the one to watch—Rossini’s endless coloratura is a killer, yet she rips through ornamentation like a carving knife. Her voice has both sweetness and bite, with hints of darker and deeper notes to come, all boding well for meatier roles down the line.” —TORONTO GLOBE AND MAIL Learn More

“Ensemble Schumann is perfection in these performances, granting us the opportunity to hear readings of exceptional warmth and fervent passion. Each member comes across as an exemplary virtuoso in his or her own right, and yet they play as if wedded for a half century.... The stunning performances and amazingly radiant tonal qualities took me quite by surprise….” —AUDIOPHILE AUDITION Learn More
“The opening of Gustavo Dudamel’s Beethoven cycle at Walt Disney Concert Hall was dominated by Simone Porter, who wove the chains of musical enchantment in Beethoven’s two Romances with such ferocious choreography that it might have been a dancer playing the fiddle instead of a violinist moving in time with the music.” —ALL THINGS STRINGS COMMUNITY Learn More
Co-Sponsored by Dale & Mieke Bennett and Wayne & Jane Beyer
“In La Verneüilléte and Soeur Monique, I was impressed with Rabinovich’s range of touch and articulation all designed to bring out distinctive details and musical features. Rabinovich made it sound spry and elegant with touch and timbre perfectly judged. In the Prélude from Le Tombeau de Couperin, Rabinovich produced a wash of impressionistic sonorities while handling Ravel’s glittering piano figurations with ease. The ensuing Minuet was tender and graceful, with Rabinovich producing a ravishing tone.” —MUSICWEB INTERNATIONAL Learn More
