Cosí fan tutte (Seville): Laudable work in the pit of the young Mexican maestro Iván López-Reynoso (Platea Magazine)
Laudable work in the pit of the young Mexican maestro Iván López-Reynoso, who made a virtue of necessity, highlighting the original orchestration of this score, for a small group of just thirty musicians. He toiled his baton in the arduous task of creating atmospheres, offering contrasts and highlighting dynamics. And he succeeded, with the impeccable commitment of the musicians of the Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville. López-Reynoso gave the impression of blending in perfectly with all the voices of the cast, providing a mattress at the same time firm and flexible for his expression. It really is difficult to do more with less.
