“Pablo Rus Broseta led the Phil through a soul-lifting Beethoven 7. … [It] opened with sparkling promise and finished with a delightful brightness of sound. The second movement’s mournful melody had an almost hypnotic effect, while the low strings provided a beautiful whisper of sadness.”

“Guest conductor Pablo Rus Broseta managed the forces on stage and the rarely performed scores with great clarity and confidence. This includes The Flight from Egypt Overture from L’enfance du Christ, Op. 25, by Hector Berlioz and Paul Hindemith’s Suite from Tuttifräntchen.
“Hindemith’s Suite from Tuttifäntchen, the familiar tale of a wooden puppet coming alive, took us through 11 brief yet thoroughly evocative vignettes. Each movement conveyed a colorful character made all the more vivid by this orchestra under Rus Broseta’s leadership.”
“Pablo Rus Broseta, acquitted himself admirably in a complicated program full of bits and pieces….”
