Collaborations

Press

Puccini – Turandot – Palm Beach opera – 25/01/2020

“Under chief conductor David Stern, the Palm Beach Opera orchestra did its usual excellent work. The outstanding string section played with transparent delicacy in Puccini’s shimmering harmonies. Soft-edged winds, stark brass and clanging percussion all contributed to bringing out the power and variety of Puccini’s richly colored score.”
