"...Lacombe treated Symphony Hall to the most engrossing and dynamic rendition of Ravel’s 'Daphnis et Chloé' that I’ve ever seen performed...
"Lacombe’s direction gave unique form to each figure, with the conductor stepping lightly and gesturing gracefully. The music danced like the ballet it was."

"Canadian maestro, Jacques Lacombe filled Symphony Hall with a kaleidoscope of colors...He colored each episode with the shifting hues and timbres of its specific atmospherics and shrewdly molded the swells and surges from which the alluring solo contributions by flute, oboe, English horn and French horn rose."
