REVIEW QUOTES

Dazzling virtuoso playing - The Washington Post

His version of the Tchaikovsky violin concerto with the St Petersburg Philharmonic yesterday was a spine-tingling moment, thanks to the astonishing confidence and chutzpah of his playing. - The Guardian

A new star is to be added to the ‘Walk of Fame’ of classical music: violinist Eric Silberger’s charisma, unusual security and mastery are the threads that tie him to virtuosos such as Paganini and Sarasate. - Mundo Clásico

“ ….he has got everything in his favour, technique, composure and personality. We are on the eve of a great soloist.” - El Pais

Impeccable level of playing, a wonderful musician - Heather Kurzbauer, The Strad

From the first note he played we saw that he’s a violinist with an absolute mastery of the violin, he made it sound so very expressive, without notice the virtuosity - but it was there.... It really seemed as an experienced musician with years of career on stage, not a young violinist. - Núvol 

His response to the demands of dazzling Concerto for violin and orchestra by Brahms was superb. - El Periodico

Silberger has played the Brahm’s Violin Concerto, a piece with great thematic material where the interpreter got the audience in love with his pianissimo, especially in the final moments of first movement, and of course with the inherent beauty of his instrument, a 1757 J.B. Guadagnin violin... His fingering and his musical phrasing were electrifying. - Sonograma Magazine

Soloist Eric Silberger played stylishly, with an assertive, arresting sound, employing generous vibrato. His brief first movement cadenza, full of trills and double-stopping, was dispatched with supreme confidence and panache... There was plenty of demonic character too in his encore, Paganini’s Caprice no. 24 in A minor, sharply inflected and displayed his precocious talent. Silberger dedicated his encore to Castleton’s founder, Lorin Maazel, who was originally to have conducted this concert. Listening to the technically wizardry at play, you could imagine Maazel grinning broadly in response. - Bachtrack

He played the concerto in what many would consider an old-styled way – and in fact there is no need to imagine anything negative with that: warm, big, unaffected, firmly rooted within the orchestra, with an effective brief cadenza of his own, this was magnificent violin playing. - Classical.net

Bold, technically solid, charismatic - Indianapolis Star

Astonishing virtuosity - Nuvo

so electrifying - DC Theatre Scene

Awe-inspiring does not do it justice - Classic Voice of New England
