July 27, 2017 at 12:15 AM · Ilya Kaler played with the Clarence (NY) Summer Orchestra this past Sunday. He began with a most delicious Meditation from Thais, a flamboyant and wondrous Zigeunerweisen, Shindler's List and the Sarasate Carmen Fantasy...he was superb as usual. He tantalized beyond the usual in the Gypsy Airs...delaying one pizzicato in the slow intro so long that a couple of the orchestra members (and me ) were spell bound waiting for him to cadence...his flickering eyebrows revealed that he was "playing us" with such a maneuver....His Carmen was flawless, wonderful harmonics and tasteful tempi throughout...He is a monster player of the first order.
