“Bravos greet world premiere… Taboloff unveiled ... his own concerto for piano and orchestra before a wildly enthusiastic audience filling the Hoffman Theatre…”


Harriet Ainsworth /East Bay Times

“ As good as the Beethoven Concerto was, {Taboloff's "The Mystic") made an even greater impression...cast in grand manner. Unlike many contemporary composers, Taboloff is a great melodist. His melodies are memorable, seethe and undulate... you are reminded of the exotic atmosphere of Grieg…but always... the dynamic tension of Rachmaninoff. Let me state in unequivocal terms...forget those abrasive contemporary composers. Give me Taboloff any day.”


Joseph Gold / Piedmont Post
