“Intermezzo is one of the bright spots on Salt Lake City’s musical summer.” Catherine reese newton, Salt Lake Tribune, 2016”

Catherine Reese Newton, Salt Lake Tribune, 2016

“The quality programming is definitely what the audiences come back for, but the surprises Intermezzo throws in also endear the audience to the organization. It isn’t uncommon for the musicians to take the stage to play a romantic sonata, but first launch into a short, unexpected contemporary work, with no warning or explanation. Fortunately, their fans have come to expect a shenanigan or two. Whether it’s having a pizza delivered onstage or organizing a stunt where the horn player falls on his horn and breaks it in the process, Intermezzo isn’t afraid to have fun with their performances.”

Laura Durham, 15 Bytes, 2016

“[Intermezzo] gave a fabulous reading that captured the lyricism and fluid lines… Their playing was cohesive and taut and wonderfully musical.”

Salt Lake Magazine Review, 2015 Season

“[Intermezzo] gave one of the most intuitively verdant and emotionally draining performances of any of Franz Schubert’s compositions that I have ever heard, live or on a recording”

Greg Walz, Artists of Utah

Baigue chose poems from Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass” that ranged from resignation to exultation, and the intimate Vieve Gore Concert Hall was scarcely big enough to contain his exuberance. The selections were so aptly chosen that it seemed as if Porter’s violin and Rollett’s horn were actually singing “Goodbye, my fancy,” the title of the Whitman poem with which the actor introduced the melancholy third movement.”
