?I wish Beethoven could have been there. He would have been the first to leap to his feet for those standing ovations.?
Prof. Owen Jander, Beethoven scholar
?What a wonderful and important day this was, not only for my family but for Philadelphia? You have a very special and unique talent for keeping the interest of your young audience, and for introducing musical ideas to the children so well.?
Philip Maneval, Manager, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society
?Conductor Karl Middleman?s forces preserved the exuberance of a work that seems to know no limits of imagination? The orchestra attacked the music with the gusto that gave an edge to almost every scene.?
