Ted Sperling

Artistic Director, MasterVoices; Music Director & Conductor for "My Fair Lady" on Broadway; Music Director for NYU Broadway Orchestra

"Ted Sperling conducted with affectionate, sympathetic verve and kept everyone dancing, prancing, ogling and miming with exceptional precision and style."
Martin Bernheimer, Financial Times

"Conducted by Ted Sperling, the concert sustained an ideal, acoustically perfect mixture of brassy confidence and vaulting romanticism."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"...the New York Philharmonic program at Avery Fisher Hall on Monday evening, was to encounter the ultimate embodiment of the romantic myth that sustained the Broadway musical during its golden years...Throughout, Mr. Sperling confidently steered the singers and the orchestra in a direction that avoided anything smacking of formal classical crossover (despite Mr. Gunn’s operatic roots) while giving music by Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Weill and Leonard Bernstein its full romantic due."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Sperling’s conducting of the score was simply ravishing with Weill’s sinuous orchestrations registering with crystalline clarity as played by the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
