“This double bill certainly has the right maestro on the podium...he draws clarity, color and vigor from the inspired Met orchestra in both works, but especially “Cavalleria.” He had this score, dismissed by some as a red sauce crowd pleaser, seeming uncommonly intelligent.”
Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
“The [Philadelphia] Orchestra is a finely calibrated powerhouse when Luisi is here, and to have this sort of artistic experience more often could only be good for everyone.”
Peter Dobrin, The Inquirer
