“…the musicians were really making music from the very first take …the players were note perfect from the start… It sounded glorious in the hall. Most amazing was the infrequent need for retakes. It is a given that professional session players are good sight readers, but what impressed me (shocked me, actually) is not so much what they grasped on the first run-through as how much they “fixed” on the second. Even the overall shape of a cue – its dramatic peaks and valleys – seemed to be intuitively comprehended by the orchestra once they had heard it.It is obvious that these musicians really listen to each other, a prerequisite of any great ensemble” (PRO MUSICA SANA: A Publication of The Miklos Rozsa Society Spring 2012)
