Promotional and performance photos of Mr. Venkatesh.
“Venkatesh opened the concert with Saint-Saens’ Concerto No. 2, in a performance with the Seattle Symphony which demonstrated profound musicianship as well as an unobtrusive technique which emphasized the atmosphere of the work. There was never a careless note in his performance, every detail shaped with thought for its place in the work and judicious use of pedal so that clarity came through in beautiful legato passages, full of tenderness and lucidity. At the same time the last movement felt light and easy despite lightning speed. This listener wouldn’t hesitate to go and hear him again, thanks to this moving, insightful performance.”
