Violinist Karen Gomyo and conductor Julian Kuerti, both rising stars in classical music, came to Rochester to perform with Julia Figueras. They came into our studios, and talked with Julia Figueras about bringing music to the younger masses, about why they like your RPO, and about Prokofiev and his unusual bowings.
Perhaps it takes a degree in physics, like the one held by guest conductor Julian Kuerti, to create intelligible interpretations of the work of Messaien and Prokofiev. On Thursday night, the RPO’s performance was of such artistry of phrasing that the case was made for the proper interpretation of those composers.
