It was a highly emotional, detail oriented reading. [...] It was an all-too-rare performance of a frequently hackneyed work and one that will not be soon forgotten by those lucky enough to hear it.

CSO guest conductor a winner. A guest conductor with an orchestra is sometimes the luck of the draw – you never know exactly what you’ll get. […] From the first note, it was clear the orchestra was in excellent hands. [..] every gesture made clear musical sense. […] Grin allowed every detail to emerge, and knew how to inspire greatness in his players.
