Dynamite Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare makes his New York debut with “flair and elegance” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) in a soaring program of Mozart and Mendelssohn. Inimitable pianist Emanuel Ax joins for the inventive “Jenamy” Concerto, and the Festival Orchestra conjures castles, fog-obscured mountains, and romantic escapades across the moors in Mendelssohn’s imaginative “Scottish” Symphony.
“Just the right blend of precision and panache.”– Financial Times on Rafael Payare
“What a pleasure to be so close to Mr. Ax during his scintillating performance of a quirky, overlooked Mozart piece.”– New York Times
