PRIME DELIGHTS FOR SMALL ORCHESTRA

Charleston City Paper,
May 30, 2012

“Mondayʼs late-afternoon Intermezzi series opener at the jam-packed Memminger Auditorium offered a tasty assortment of bonbons for small orchestra, splendidly performed by members of our workhorse Spoleto Festival Orchestra (SFO) under the deft baton of Alexander Kahn...This is marvelous, but tricky material; Kahn and company delivered it with tremendous precision, clarity, and verve [on Stravinsky’s Concerto in D]...You wouldnʼt believe the gorgeous sound Kahn coaxed out of his people unless you were there [on Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro]...By the time they got through the music here, Kahn and friends had more than a few of us crying, too.”
