my enormous pleasure, honor and privilege to perform recently under the
direction of Maestro Raffaele Ponti, definitely one of the most gifted
conductors of his generation. It is
quite rare that one comes across a musician of such technical mastery and
musical sensitivity. Not only is Maestro
Ponti a singular charismatic presence on the podium but a wonderfully
supportive and enthusiastic colleague.
Playing under his baton was a real treat for me as well as a highly
inspirational and memorable experience!”
