Carlos Miguel Prieto and the Orchestra of the Americas’ summer festivals tour was received with critical acclaim. Conductor and orchestra gave performances in Rheingau, Hamburg, Odessa and more, before finishing their tour with a concert at the Edinburgh International Festival. Joined by pianist Gabriela Montero, the combination of conductor, soloist and impassioned young orchestral musicians resulted in something “simply delicious”.
“the Elbphilharmonie, in it’s 570-day history has already seen and heard quite a lot: extraordinary highlights and unforgettable moments. But anything as colourful as the performance of the Orchestra of the Americas? No... The term “concert” does not stretch far enough to describe the special magic of the evening... Carlos Miguel Prieto handled the exciting mix of hot rhythms with the skill of a seasoned conductor, shaping everything into a rousing whole.” Hamburger Abendblatt
