"Not since the late Leonard Bernstein has classical music had a combination salesman-teacher as irresistible as Rob Kapilow. He's as lively as a top-flight sports announcer and as entertaining as a stand-up comedian. But he’s also got substance in spades.”
                                                                                  - Kansas City Star

You'll never hear this music the same way again.
