Rick Peridian – 4/9/22

“The Benedictus, especially the violin solo, is Beethoven at his most eloquent, hopeful and prayerful. Concertmaster David Kim captured all of these feelings with scintillating, silken tone. It was indisputably a star turn, but conductor and violinist strove to make the solo line an integral component of the orchestra texture, which gave it all the more impact musically and emotionally.” —Rick Perdian, New York Classical Review, reviewing Beethoven’s Missa solemnis at Carnegie Hall
