Reviews

“Tali and the 27-year-old Czech pianist, Lukáš Vondráček, collaborated on a brilliant reading of Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini,” bringing out inner voices and colors that made this work seem reborn. There were ripples of humor, stretches of passion and intense musicality that delineated the kind of music-making generally relegated to the best of chamber performances.” (Herald-Tribune (Sarasota), November 2013)
 
“They were led by the brilliant young Estonian conductor Anu Tali […] Ms. Tali conducted grippingly.” (The New York Times, March 2011)

“The performances are outstanding: Anu Tali already has a very high reputation, and this beautifully recorded and produced disc is without doubt another jewel in her crown.” (Ivan Moody, International Record Review, January 2011)

“The young Estonian Anu Tali… showed excellent command.” (The New York Times, January 2009)

“Anu Tali, the impressive Estonian conductor, showed her creative power particularly in Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9. She modelled the sound of the orchestra with relish, determined and accurate: she formed the music exactly following her imagination. Her powerful and effective movements passed on immediately to the musicians, whose joy of playing was apparent in every second.” (Frankfurter Neue Presse, October 2007)
