Quotes & Highlights

“You’ve never heard a classical music concert like this before … Kapilow’s exuberance transported the audience back into the mind of the composer and his contemporaries…. it brings a whole new level of appreciation.” —San Diego Union-Tribune
“This was a knockout combination of education and entertainment … Hearing each song after Kapilow revealed its musical secrets was like meeting a celebrity just after reading his or her autobiography. Throughout the show Kapilow never once sounded dry or academic — but he did sound smart, enthusiastic, and stunningly articulate. He has a remarkable ability to make genius understandable to a general audience.” —Theatermania.com
