The New York Times had this to say about Ilya Kaler: "You'll never hear the violin played more perfectly."
Kahler will join the Minnesota Sinfonia this weekend for concerts that will include Vieuxtemps' Violin Concerto No. 5.
He and the Minnesota Sinfonia are featured in this week's Regional Spotlight with a recent performance of Mozart's Rondo. Kaler is a poet with this fresh-sounding masterpiece.
