"I felt calm and at ease under his baton and it was clear that he understood both the score and vocal needs of his singers."

Rossi was able to keep the hectic pace of the score alive, rhythmically tight, and well coordinated, not to mention eliciting remarkably loud passages that were breathtaking."
