“Violinsoloist Daniel Dodds enthralled audience and colleagues in Lalo’s “Symphonie Espagnole”. “The violinist Daniel Dodds accomplished with the solo part of Edouard Lalo’s “Symphonie Espagnole” a truly brilliant feat.

“…Dodds performed with great confidence, effortlessly, to be exact. Stylish and crisp ornaments as well as his tone variety made his performance even more fascinating. His running scales and arpeggios were superb. Audiences were thrilled with his cadenza, which created a great sense of climax and excitement. In the remarkable second movement, Dodds expressed his musical talent by playing a simple rising melodic line very beautifully. He charmed the audience with his beautiful and refined musical phrasing while the orchestra provided gentle support by playing light pizzicato…”
