ON PABLO . . .
“Having Maestro Pablo Urbina with us as guest conductor is not easy to describe with words; you need to be with him, work with him, you need to feel his way of feeling music to understand the great human being that he is! Amazing conductor, amazing person, we want to work over and over again with him. He is the future!”
“Musicality is obviously in his veins… a young conductor to look out for!”
“Pablo Urbina drew out of the ensemble a fine performance, highlighting the sheer emotion of Kamen´s melodically and harmonically gifted compositions. Maestro Urbina’s conducting exhibited its own emotion; he really ‘gets’ film music – the music of drama and passion”
