"The rise and rise of Ukraine's Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra, under their dynamic young American chief, Hobart Earle, must rank as one of the unlikeliest stories to emerge from the classical music world in recent times...critics the world over, from Vienna to New York to Moscow, clearly know a good thing when they hear it."
