"FLOWED NATURALLY AND URGENTLY"
"Stepping in for the originally scheduled Oksana Lyniv, Italian-Iranian conductor Louis Lohrasebmade an auspicious Los Angeles debut. Standing tall and arms waving high, he conducted a fine performance that included much colorful orchestral playing and flowed naturally and urgently from scene to scene. The L.A. Opera management would do well to snap him up for future seasons as soon as possible.
“…we dare say that the current revival under the skillful wand of the astonishingly young Louis Lohraseb and starring the powerful triumvirate of Angel Blue as Tosca, Michael Fabiano as Cavaradossi, and Ryan McKinny as Scarpia is even more thrilling than before."
"Very luckily Louis Lohraseb, a recent alumnus of our young artists program, was pressed into service for his mainstage debut. Already with a list of impressive credits for someone so young it was apparent from his entrance into the pit that he’s also a favorite with the orchestra and he proved immediately why. The LA Opera Orchestra veritably erupted and sparkled under his sure-handed guidance. He made deft work of highlighting Puccini’s kaleidoscopic orchestrations and showed a keen understanding of the works musical architecture as well as providing excellent support for his singers."
"VIBRANT AND FULL OF TENSION"
"Teatro dell'Opera's good orchestra was conducted with ability by Louis Lohraseb, who has, no doubt, a merit in making this world premiere vibrant and full of tension."
"Musical director Louis Lohraseb proves why he is one of the most promising young conductors of his generation, with Classical Music Daily describing the performance as ‘a triumph … at the end [the audience] erupted into almost ten minutes of ovations."
"INDUBBIAMENTE MERITO NEL SUCCESSO"
"L’abilità del maestro concertatore [Louis Lohraseb] e dell’orchestra hanno indubbiamente merito nel successo dell’operazione che è in gran misura un mirabile pastiche come quelli confezionati da Händel (e altri) in epoca barocca. “
"A FUTURE FOR CLASSICAL MUSIC"
"The movement is notoriously difficult to conduct; reconciling its many sections would seem to be a skill accessible only to the experienced. In Louis’ hands it ignited. Listeners were crying in the aisles afterwards. There is a future for classical music—I just heard it.”
