“Conductor Louis Scaglione and the musicians of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra (ages 15–22) welcomed David Kim, concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, to perform the complete Mendelssohn concerto. Among many virtues, Kim demonstrated that some expert team players can switch gears and morph into expert soloists and, even in the midst of passages of lyricism and fire, he found time for appreciative nods at his young colleagues—and vice versa.” —Bruce Hodges, Strad Magazine
