He is a young conductor ready to be one of the protagonists of the musical life of the future. He showed such a ductility and a talent, as well as a way to galvanise and lead the orchestra that one is reminded of older maestri. It has been a wonderful discovery... A beautiful performance, where there is a force, a brilliancy but at the same time a wonderful clarity and lyricism,” declared the journalist Michele Suozzo on RAI Radio 3 after the live broadcast.
Highlights of forthcoming seasons include his debuts with the Filarmonica della Scala, the Orchestre National d’Île-de-France, the Noord Nederlands Orchestra, debut in Mannheim Opera (Germany) and a tour with Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi in Teatro La Fenice.
