“Denève began with a bilingual greeting to the audience (“Good evening! Bon soir!”) and spoke briefly about the music. He’s steadily winning over St. Louisans with his combination of personal charm, smart musical choices and carefully thought-out programming. He and the SLSO always played well together when he was a guest; now, that connection is steadily deepening.”

“Denève has a terrific grasp of this music, exploring all its facets and bringing various elements to the fore. It made for a fine collaboration with every section of the orchestra, and got a great response from the audience.”
