Acclaim
“The highlight of the concert for this listener (and one of the highlights of the season, actually) was Walker's performance of "Scheherazade”… His affection came through in almost every bar. Walker painted vivid pictures but also told the story. It was a case of balancing the special effects of the orchestration with the pacing of the whole. He coaxed all the voluptuary shapes in the broad string melodies, made the dances nimble and crisp, and vaulted the tricky transitions in single bounds. He never pushed and made the cinematic climaxes the old-fashioned way, by earning them. This was all helped by a light touch (call it taste) and an attention to instrumental balances; we could hear everything.”
