Review from the Peninsula Reviews:

“The orchestra, under the direction of Khudyev delivered a lovely precision and delicious dynamic shaping of the phrases, plus some gorgeous pianissimo playing in the strings that struck a beautiful balance with the choral singers.”

“One last work on the program, the Overture to Candide by Leonard Bernstein brought the audience to its feet. And, what an audience — it was a full house.”
