    TV Lets the All-Stars Play Together
    2013-09-06 New York Times,
    "All-Star Orchestra… the sheer richness, warmth and body of the orchestral sound are something special….. the musicians bring vast, and palpable, experience to bear. The playing is consistently strong, with wondrous solo moments…. sumptuous splendor and technical assurance …. As always, Mr. Schwarz proves a skilled and efficient conductor …  Robert Cafaro, a Philadelphia Orchestra cellist, clearly speaks for many players when he says: "I had no idea it would be quite this good. This is probably the highest-level orchestra I've ever played with."  "
