Speranza Scappucci praised for New York debut

Speranza Scappucci completed her New York debut, giving performances that were met with critical acclaim. Conducting Rossini’s “Il Turco in Italia” on 19th, 21st & 23rd November at The Juilliard School, Scappucci received high praise from Anthony Tommasini in the The New York Times:

‘Ms. Scappucci, the Italian conductor, whose education includes some years at Juilliard, drew energetic, stylish playing from the Juilliard Orchestra and excelled at performing on the harpsichord during the recitatives. Her accompaniments were a delightful mix of brusque chords and sly arpeggios. At 41, she seems on the cusp of a big international career’.
