“Quint’s tonal opulence, generously inflected with subtle portamentos, sound like a throwback to the glory days of Fritz Kreisler. Quint is certainly no slouch when it comes to moving the music forward, yet he always finds time to give his phrasing an affectionate lilt, … a rich, ruby port to set besides Heifetz’s sparkling effervescence.” BBC Music Magazine
“He’s a fervidly expressive player in a Romantic vein, with a nimble technique that always makes room for whatever fluctuations in tempo may be necessary. His sound is full and dark-hued, with a tremulous catch to it that would do credit to an operatic tenor. I kept imagining him in the midst of the violin concerts of Brahms, Tchaikovsky or even Berg. The violinist’s ample artistry was on display to better effect during his brief encore, an excerpt from John Corigliano’s music for the film “The Red Violin.” In just a few robust harmonies and strong-limbed melodic excursions, Quint created an entire world of memorably expressive grandeur.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Brilliantly played by American soloist Philippe Quint...Tugan Sokhiev at the podium...a dazzling Quint, partners, musicians and leader, were up to their task.” Les Dernieres Nouvelles d'Alsace
